Graduation: A weekend of achievement

Today’s OBSERVER shines a light on a special group of individuals this weekend: our area graduates.

From Friday through Sunday, hundreds of seniors will receive a document that certifies they have completed their educations at area schools. Our congratulations to them on their achievement.

Also of interest is readers may notice there is one less school in the section. Due to the tuitioning of students to Chautauqua Lake, Ripley is no longer represented. Its students will be graduating from the school in Mayville, though there will still be a valedictorian and salutatorian represented from Ripley.

Those former Ripley students – and those who follow in their footsteps – are better off with the partnership.
