Fairfield high-schoolers graduate 2 p.m. Sunday

By DIANE VANCE | May 30, 2013

Fairfield High School will award diplomas to 135 seniors in a graduation ceremony beginning at 2 p.m. Sunday in Trojan Stadium.

The ceremony moves into the high school gym in case of inclement weather.

Seating in the bleachers is first come, first served.

The Class of 2013’s colors are black and silver, and the graduation gowns are black for males and silver for females.

Honor society members also will be wearing the traditional blue and gold cords, and graduates who performed 60 or more hours of community service in high school will be distinguished by wearing a gray cord.

The Class of 2013’s motto is: “Let every day be the first day of the rest of your life, but especially let today be a new beginning,” a quote attributed to Jonathon Lockwood Huie.

Student speaker, elected by peer vote, is Jacob Mineart this year.

Superintendent Art Sathoff will welcome the graduates, families and friends.

FHS associate principal Brian Stone will announce scholastic honors.

School board president Jennifer Anderson and FHS principal Aaron Becker will address the graduates.

Anderson and Sathoff will present the diplomas.

The FHS Vox Choir, under the direction of Zach Reiter, will sing “The Call,” by Regina Spektor.

The concert band directed by Jim Edgeton will perform “Pomp and Circumstance” and “Fanfare and Recessional.”

A limited amount of handicap parking, for those with appropriate permits, is available on the north side of the stadium. Those vehicles should enter along the north side of the school on Briggs Avenue.
