The class of 2018 was recognized as celebrations got underway for the students graduating from Prince Albert Collegiate Institute Wednesday.

Twenty-six graduates received their diplomas at the E.A. Rawlinson Centre, with family and friends in attendance to help them celebrate their accomplishment. Principal Dawn Adams said the graduating class was a diverse group, including some newcomers to Canada and some who had left school early and returned to complete their studies.

“Honouring our graduates and the work that they’ve put in is a great celebration,” Adams told paNOW. “Everybody has a different idea of success, but I think just being contributing citizens to society is important.”

Lia Vorobyev was recognized as class valedictorian Wednesday, and also received awards for achieving the highest average in English language arts, math, science, and practical and applied arts.

Wednesday’s ceremony also included messages from local government representatives, Elders, and the Saskatchewan Rivers Public School Board. A special video presentation was also shown featuring pictures of each of the graduates throughout their school years, along with their Grade 12 graduation photo.
