Seniors Say Their Final Goodbye’s

Tears were shed, laughs were shared and hugs and congratulations were exchanged on June fifth, when the class of 2012 said goodbye to Community High School.  Family, friends, teachers, administrators, students and graduates gathered in Rackham Auditorium for three hours to honor the graduates.  Community’s graduation is very different from traditional graduation ceremonies held at most schools. Every student had thirty seconds to talk about anything they chose.  Most graduates took their time to talk about what Community meant to them.  Many thanked their teachers and peers for making Community what it is today.
