Greenbrier High School valedictorian Jeremy Alan Lee described the graduation ceremony as "your championship moment," the culmination of four years of hard work. "We have clearly demonstrated that the potential to achieve lies within all of us," he said.

The 350 graduates received their diplomas at James Brown Arena.

Valedictorian Jeremy Lee described the moment as “your championship moment,” the culmination of four years of hard work.

“We have clearly demonstrated that the potential to achieve lies within all of us,” he said.

Columbia County schools Superintendent Charles Nagle advised the graduates to make plans for their futures and to set goals for themselves.

Cassandra Robinson and Kayla Berns have already taken his advice.

Berns, the class president, will play volleyball for Armstrong State University in the fall.

While she’s considering becoming a pharmacist, she knows she wants to continue playing volleyball.

“I’m really excited to play at Armstrong,” she said.

Robinson, the class secretary, will attend Augusta State University in the fall. While at Greenbrier, she earned
her nursing assistant certification and plans to become a nurse.

After the ceremony, both said they felt happy and a little relieved to be done with high school, but they were excited to begin their futures.

“I’m jittery, but mostly happy,” Robinson said.

The Glue Girls

I'm wondering, were the Glue Girls allowed to attend, even though they could not participate in the festivities? What a travesty!
