At the MCL meeting held on May 14, Trego received the league sportsmanship award. This award is based on sportsmanship shown by players, coaches, cheerleaders, and student body. This award was started in 1984, and this is the second time Trego has received this award with the other time coming in the 1998-99 school year. Each school votes for a first place and second place school and the results are tallied. After the initial vote, Trego was tied with another school and the remaining eight schools voted again. Trego received all eight votes! This is an honor our school and community should be very proud of!
Twenty TCHS seniors received their diplomas at the graduation held in the Trego Community High School new gym on May 10.
The ceremony began with a welcome by principal, Myron Flax. Next the graduates gave purple carnations dipped in gold to their parents as “See You Again” by Carrie Underwood played over the speakers.
After some tearful hugs between graduates and their parents, commencement speaker Jane Lang was introduced by Flax. Lang spoke of teaching the senior class two times, once while they were second graders and again in eighth grade language arts. Lang was called to take over teaching the then second grade seniors after their beloved teacher, Nancy Scott, passed away. Lang spoke to them about answering their call, living honestly, and loving deeply. Lang ended by reading the book, “You are my Wonders,” by Maryann Cusimano Love.
After the commencement address, the senior choir members gave a moving performance of “I’ll Always Remember You,” by Miley Cyrus.
Following the choir, Carl Mohler read each senior’s name, and the seniors were presented with their diplomas by board members Dawn Howard, Jason Dinkel, and Renae Denning.
Kathy Jamison then played the celebrating graduates out, and they proceeded to the old gym for a receiving line.
Before the start of the awards ceremony, people toured art projects in the commons area, woods projects in the old gym, and FACS projects in the library.
Irene Dirks, the art teacher, had all 42 of her students present any of their projects if they wished. FACS teacher, Karen Cook had her clothing class present their sewing projects, and a variety of woods projects, ranging from shelves to tables, were displayed by Carl Mohler’s woods students.
At the awards ceremony, seniors took their place at the front of the auditorium as guests of honor. Winners of local scholarships and awards were announced. (click here for photos and names of all winners)
