Kearsley’s students, staff, and community gathered Wednesday, May 30, to celebrate the graduation of the Senior Class at the annual Class Day celebration.

The event started with the seniors walking down the center of the gymnasium, with some performing secret handshakes and carrying each other as they awaited the start of the event.

Kicking things off, Assistant Principal Matt Moore honored those seniors who will serve their country in the military.

Cameron Adle will serve in the U.S. Marine Corps. Justin Karram and Robert Dubie enlisted in the Navy, and Alex Wiedenhammer has signed up with the Air Force.

Seniors Dave Sredich (l to r), Kyle Palka, and Gavin Etson perform in the senior skit during the epic rap battle between the basketball team and the bowling teams.

A few seniors performed songs for their fellow classmates, including Will Angliss, Jenny Fraley, Rayanna Braziel, and Gracie Garfi-Sharber.

Angliss’ performance of “Closer,” a song by The Chainsmokers, received a loud ovation from seniors as well as underclassmen.

Throughout the event, parts of the senior skit were shown.

This year’s skit was inspired by the Netflix show “Stranger Things.”

Senior Alex Eible played a new student to Kearsley in the Class of 2018’s skit. He is shown around the school by students and witnesses strange occurrences throughout the building.

A highlight of the skit was the takeover of the school by the district’s first superintendent, Mr. George Daly, who harasses Mr. Craig Golembiewski, counselor, and members of the student body.

The Class of 2018, together with the rest of Kearsley’s students, kicks off graduation week festivities with Class Day.

The skit also portrayed many of the teachers and their mannerisms, from Mr. Shane Atkinson, to Mr. Andy Nester, to Mrs. Mary Riley.

All in all, the skit was well done and had people laughing all the way through it.

The event ended with the showing of pictures of seniors as babies and comparing them to their senior photographs.

The Senior Class will be thoroughly missed.

From their hilarious jokes to their diligent work ethic, the Class of 2018 will now move into the world and tackle bigger and better things.
