exercises Saturday in the Robert Brown Theatre. Seventy four graduates
received their high school diploma from the Kansas Board of Regents after
taking the GED final examination.
Out of the 74 graduates, 15 qualified for a scholarship to Cowley College based on their final exam scores. Among the graduates were students in the college’s first GED preparation online/hybrid course.
Slade Griffiths, Cowley College vice-president of academic affairs, gave the graduation address. Liz Shepherd, Upward Bound director, introduced the graduates and presented the class of 2009.

“We have tremendous support from the college and appreciate what they do for our students,” said Devin Graves, director of GED/ABE. “Everyone involved enjoyed the graduation.”
