Speaker praises grads at Christian
Published 05/24/2010, The Daily Republic
As Bob Lemon looked upon the nine graduates of Mitchell Christian High School, he couldn’t help but throw in a bit of humor during his graduation day speech.
“Even though you as graduates began your formal senior-itis about halfway through your sophomore year, we have come to appreciate you as a class for your hard work, your dedication and, above all, for the leadership that you have shown and the example you have set for the young people that follow in your footsteps,” said Lemon, a secondary Bible teacher at the school. Lemon’s speech was part of Saturday’s commence- ment address that honored the nine college-bound seniors graduating from Mitchell Christian. Family and friends gathered in the Mitchell Christian gymnasium to enjoy speeches, a slideshow and the presentation of diplomas and Bibles to the graduates.
