Many gathered at the Salem High auditorium Tuesday, June 11 for the Continuing Education graduation ceremony.  Graduating students were awarded with either an adult High School Diploma or a GED High School Equivalency Certificate.  Over a 100 graduates earned an education that evening.  Some as young 16 and graduating early.  Mr. Larson, Dean of Alternative & Continuing Education, explained, “Some students are graduating a year early and so they are actually accelerating graduation.”  Other students, however, in great contrast were much older returning back to school after many years.  Some returning as parents, others possibly even grandparents, all, however, working hard to better their future.”
