“Show me your friends and I will show you who you are.”
Choose your friends carefully, Father Merik cautioned the Grade 9 Christ-King Catholic School (CKCS) class during their farewell ceremony at Christ-King Catholic Church on June 8.
“Get on the right path with the right people.”
During the farewell ceremony Kaylee Bogner gave the first reading, Colton Payne gave the responsorial Psalm and Brandy Kennedy gave the prayers of the faithful.
The dinner program included the valedictorian speech by Madison Swaren and Brody Nichols, the parent tribute by Hannah Canlas, student tribute by parents Phil and Julie Jarmin, teacher tribute by Jesse Jarmin and a student tribute by teacher MTK.
The Grade 9 CKCS class includes: Madison Swaren, Jesse Jarmin, Domenic Juhasz, Brody Nichols, Paige Niehaus, Carlos Ramos, Shelby Sobchyshyn, Darius Payne, Evan Bogner, Khushi Patel, Lance Magmanlac, Kaydon Kennedy, Josh De Guzman, Joel Gustavson, Hannah Canlas and Autumn Wyness.
The students’ favourite memories of CKCS were highlighted.
Darius Payne said he will miss the “great teachers who had taught me throughout the years.”
Kaydon Kennedy echoed that sentiment saying he will miss the “feeling of being at home because of all the caring teachers.”
