ATLANTA — The seniors at Atlanta High School will always remember the four years they spent with classmates, playing sports, and their favorite teachers as they move on from their time in school in the small town.

On Friday, 22 Huskies were honored during the annual graduation ceremony. There were cheers, laughs, and maybe a few tears, as students took a stroll down memory lane and shared their hopes and dreams for one another in the years ahead.

Superintendent Tony Suszek urged his students to always treasure the memories and friends they made while in school in Atlanta and is confident the class as a whole will leave its mark at the school, in the community, and in the world as whole.

“After accepting these diplomas, much will change. Some will go to college, some will go to trade schools and some will go to work,” Suszek said. “All of them have dreams of becoming welders, teachers, artists, and business owners. You may start from the bottom, but with hard work and a positive attitude, you can be very very successful.

Suszek said the students are completing high school and entering college or the workforce at a good time. He said each student should have many opportunities to find quality work, in the field, or fields of their choice.

“Take advantage of these opportunities and check back with us because we will want to hear how successful you are.”

After the speeches from school officials and several students, the graduates one by one walked across the stage to receive their diploma and received congratulations from the board of education.
