Graduation is just around the corner! Let’s talk with a few students graduating this year… Chris Gilliam, Erin Ulozas, and Blake Fonner.

All three students have one thing in common. They all report being “excited” to graduate.

After graduating, Gilliam is going to Richland Community College in Decatur, IL, where he will study Law Enforcement. In his calm manner, when asked if he would miss high school, he said, “Naw.”

Ulozas has plans to move to Arkansas and attend college at the University of Arkansas in Monticello. She will be working towards a degree to become a social worker.  When asked if she was going to miss high school, she said, “no.”  She also, enthusiastically, stated she would miss, “maybe like two people” from high school.

Fonner reports he is not planning to go to college, “I am going to stay at my current job at UPS and work my way up to a driver.”  Will he miss anything about high school?  “I would miss some of the teachers, but other than that, I wouldn’t miss anything.”

Alas, What Up Wit Dat???? is also graduating from high school… WHAT UP WIT DAT?????!!

Graduation is at 2 p.m., June 5th, 2016, at Meridian High School.  Come cheer on all the graduates and give them a big send off into the real world!!!

What are you going to miss the most about high school?
