This weekend 127 students graduated from Ketchikan High School. An additional nine students from Revilla High School and Fast Track also graduated on Sunday. Kayhi counselor Robert McClory said the 2015 class was one of the brightest in years.
“One of the nicest, sharpest classes we’ve had in years,” said McClory. “We didn’t have one senior fail to graduate on time. A lot of smart kids in there.”
The 2015 graduating class was offered $6.8 million in college granted and local scholarships – $3.6 million was accepted. Of that sum $200,000 were local scholarships.
Senior advisor and English teacher Rebecca Bowlen said the senior officers and the class of 2015 were an easy going and helpful class.
“The senior officers were extremely organized and easy to work with,” said Bowlen. “Senior carnival was a breeze. Prom was a breeze. Overall, they were an easy and cooperative class.”
Kayhi’s Valedictorian was J.D Langert and the Salutatorian was Gwen Ranniger. Both have a 4.0 GPA.
