What does your diploma represent?
It's piece of paper, it's "proof" you graduated, but it's really more than that.
|Congratulations to the Huntsville High School Class of 2014!|
It represents all of your hard work, your persistence through the inevitable ups and downs of your life growing up.
|HHS Principal Beth Burt "moves the tassel" for each of the 403 graduates.|
As you already know, the word commencement means "a beginning," and though this is the beginning of your new life, it's so much fun to take the time to celebrate all that you have accomplished, with the teachers, parents, relatives, friends and administrators that were with you along the way.
|This is a GOOD day.|
It all went by in a whoosh, and the ceremony was over in under two hours. The memories, however, from this morning, and the four years at High School, will last a lifetime.
|Seems like a pretty darn good time for a hug: Mrs. Surley & Triston celebrate.|
|Action Shot: Amy has her diploma!|
|Seth Autery and 402 of his closest friends proudly sing the school song.|

On Saturday, June 7th at 10:00 a.m., we came together as we have since 1916 to recognize our graduating seniors.
|Assistant Principal Mr. Herrington and the new graduates pause for a moment |
for a prayer of gratitude and blessings.
|The Huntsville High School Chorale sang, "Give Me Wings."|

|Look at the top left corner- it's not a UFO, it's an IFM! |
