On Friday, June 3rd, our 8th grade class graduated from Horizon Science Academy Youngstown. Class speeches were given by Kira Grimes and Dynasti Boykin. They spoke about their time here at HSAY and the wonderful memories they made. The HSAY choir led the audience in singing “Man in the Mirror.” A speech was given by Pastor Hudson on discipline, education, and responsibility. Diplomas were handed out by Ms. Barone and Ms. Santos. The ceremony ended with the turning of the tassels tradition, which signifies moving from one chapter to the next. A reception was held after the ceremony with refreshments and pictures.
We will miss our 8th grade class of 2016, and look forward to seeing what journeys await them. They were a great group with bright futures ahead, and we thank them for their hard work.
A special thank you to Ms. Santos for everything she did for the 8th grade class this year. She helped them raise money for graduation, shirts, and different activities throughout the year. She is a major reason why our graduation ceremony went so well!
