Congratulations Ocean Dunes High School Graduates!

From Joy Koenig:

Graduates Javontae, Jonathen, Joshua, Michael, and Kody
Seven students graduated from Ocean Dunes High School on Friday, June 16. Five were in attendance (pictured above). Every student had a family member or a mentor present, and it was a great day of celebration, complete with swag for the graduates and mementos for the attendees. The graduation was delightful, and culminated with a barbecue and cake!

Esteemed guest speakers were Mary Botkin, MESD Board Vice-Chair; and Fariborz Pakseresht, Oregon Youth Authority Director.

MESD staff in attendance were Carol Bessett, Teacher; Kelly Kawahara, Educational Assistant; Cindi Brokaw-Klewitz, Special Education Teacher; Kathryn Skimas, Director of Instruction, and Joy Koenig, Principal of Ocean Dunes High School.
Excerpt from MESD Board Vice-Chair Mary Botkin's speech:
I know that each of you have faced hard choices and tough decisions. Like most of us you have made mistakes along the way and paid a high price for those mistakes.

You may wonder, what now? Where to from here? I want to assure you the world is waiting for you to make your mark, write your own story and tell your own tales. Don't let anyone tell your story for you.
Fariborz Pakseresht, Oregon Youth Authority Director, addresses the graduates.
Principal Joy Koenig congratulates each of the graduates.
