An overflow crowd of more than 500 cheering friends and relatives attended Oak Creek Intermediate School’s Promotion Ceremony June 7, as 51 eighth graders received their diplomas.

“It was great to see the many service clubs and individuals from the community that support our school and all of the other schools in the mountains,” Principal Brad Barcus said. “We have great kids because their parents and their community support them.”

The superintendent award winners, given to students who have been on the honor roll every semester between sixth and eighth grades, were Britney Allen, Lauren Bernardi, Kayla Peterson, Trinity Tompkins, and Hannah Huntington.

Following the processional led by YHS Band Director Francisco Marquez, a welcome from Barcus, and graduation address by ASB President Brandon Garrett, the awards were given out and the Class of 2017 received their diplomas.
