Rockford’s senior rockets ready to take flight

Rockford High School’s 95th commencement exercise was a huge success drawing huge attendance of family friends to the Rockford Community Center on Thursday, June 7.

The Rockford High School Band and A Cappella Choir performed the music.

Mary Nelson, Valedictorian, delivered the Senior Address, and Julia Merila the faculty address.

Erica Cates, a Rockford Resident and grandmother of two RHS students, received an honorary diploma for contributions made to enhance the district’s computer lab.

Helen Scharber, Ph.D., was named the RHS Distinguished Alumni for 2012. She is a visiting assistant professor of economics at Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts.

The evening concluded with a school sanctioned all-night party.

Congratulations, RHS grads, and best of luck.
