Lake Roosevelt High School graduates took deep breaths of fresh air at their graduation ceremony Saturday after two school years boxed in by a global pandemic.

The class of 2021, 56 in all, took their seats on the bleachers above the football field, facing a throng of families strategically distanced from each other in groups on the field below.

Unlike last year, the weather cooperated on a beautiful day.

Speeches from the valedictorian, salutatorian and two class speakers tried to summarize the moment and the meaning.

Awards and scholarship offerings were announced, with the class garnering $684,137 in scholarship offers, with 55 percent of that offered to one student. Four also earned two-year college degrees at community colleges.

Their awards, scholarships, and other notable accomplishments are listed below.

Video wanted

A company the school district hired to video the graduation said immediately after the ceremony that their recording and streaming effort had failed, Superintendent Paul Turner said.

Turner said the district is interested in getting copies of any personal videos community members took during the ceremony to assemble some video memory for the graduates and families.

Contact the district for details.
