ACHS Class of 2017 Commencement Fri 26 May
Adair County High School's Graduating Class of Two Thousand Seventeen
By Chad Parnell
The Adair County High School Class of 2017 will hold its commencement exercises on Friday, May 26, 2017, at 7pmCT at the John Burr Memorial Gymnasium, 526 Indian Drive, Columbia, KY. Each senior who is participating in the graduation ceremony has been given two tickets for early entry. Ticket holders may enter the gym at 5:30pmCT. The general public may enter at 6pmCT.
The class of 2017 is made up of 183 students. Ninety-two students have achieved a Latin honor academic recognition. Fifteen students have earned a Suma Cum Laude designation (weighted GPA of 4.0 or greater), 41 students have earned a Magna Cum Laude designation (weighted GPA of 3.5 to 3.99), and 36 students have earned a Cum Laude designation (weighted GPA of 3.0 to 3.49).
Seniors will also be wearing zipper pulls that denote college and career readiness. Fifty-nine students have met both college and career readiness benchmarks, 39 students have met college ready benchmarks, and 30 students have met career readiness benchmarks.
Special music will be performed by the ACHS Band and the ACHS Choir and colors will be presented by the ACHS Junior Guard.
The motto for the Class of 2017 is "Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory," by Dr. Seuss. The class chose I Go Back by Kenny Chesney as the class song, the Red Dahlia as the class flower, and blue and white as the class colors.
