Seniors from Palo Duro, Tascosa, Caprock and Amarillo High Schools were celebrated as they near the finish line and gear up for graduation.
This afternoon, Central Church of Christ hosted a baccalaureate ceremony for the graduating seniors.
“They get a chance to basically kind of have a precursor to graduation, but they also get the religious side to it,” said Tascosa teacher, Elissa Anderson. “They get to have some aspect in touch with God about their next step in life and also have that time with their classmates that they would not have at graduation.”
Students were recognized at the worship service and had a chance to reflect before finally receiving their diplomas and taking their next steps.
“My plans after high school is to take my basics at AC and major in religion, and then…I’m going to transfer over to Ozark Christian College to get my degree,” said Caprock Senior Jesus Troncozo.
