In his message to the crowd at Liberty High School’s graduation ceremony, Principal Zachary Pless said he had asked staff upon starting his position what their favorite time of year was. Their answer was not the holiday dinners, field trips or other special events but rather Graduation Day. Traditionally, Liberty’s graduation ceremony has been an event to reinforce the often repeated statement that the school is “like a family,” remind students of how far they have come and inspire them to keep that motivation with them as they move into the future. All of that was on display Thursday, as families gathered on the Marina Green to watch 32 Liberty graduates take their next steps into the world.
To kick things off, Superintendent Dr. Charles Young said the ceremony was a celebration of the hard work put in not only by the students but also their parents and guardians who guided them along the way.
