EAST BREMERTON — With a couple of songs and a few memorable speeches, the Klahowya Secondary School Class of 2019 officially said goodbye Thursday evening.
Seniors decked out in green and white celebrated their time at the little school in the woods and the possibilities of what is to come in the future.
Anna Jett, the Class of 2019’s valedictorian, reviewed her letter to herself that she wrote in eighth grade, and it talked about how she wished to head off on a new adventure, far from the comforts of home. It proved to be true. Jett is attending George Washington University in Washington, D.C. in the fall.
“What mainly stood out to me was how I envisioned my future would be,” Jett said. “I wanted to be going somewhere, doing something, leaving everything behind.”
Salutatorian Kate Streck looked back on the many accomplishments that distinguishes this year’s class, many of whom attended the school for all six years and went from precocious preteens to young adults.
“As we grew together, we became a more determined, more resilient class, and it shows through our achievements,” Streck said.
With degrees in hand, the 2018-2019 Senior Class Officers took the stage to direct the class in the tassel crossover. With that, they were graduates and proceeded out of the pavilion to the all-important time to have pictures taken with their friends.
