The weather outside may have been frightful, but that didn’t dampen the spirits of 45 Conrad High School seniors who walked across the gym floor one last time to be handed a graduation diploma.
It was the one hundred-first annual commencement exercise for the high school.
Two-by-two the seniors filed in as the CHS band, under the direction of Todd Truscott, played the traditional processional. The National Anthem was sung by members of the Skyliner singing group.
Senior class advisor, Sam Vidal, gave a short welcoming address in which he said he was honored to have worked with this class.
Class President Nikki Linn then introduced the class speakers, Amanda Lee, Megan Coffelt, and Sierra Richardson.
The Junior-Senior Choir presented a rendition of I Will Remember You with Carol Johns playing the piano.

Working as a team, Connie Hanson and Shari Richter opened their real estate doors in March of 2010. Both are excited to start their second year of business in their new location inside the Pondera Village Shopping Center and next to 3Rivers Communications.
These ladies have a combination of commitment and service to both their buyers and sellers. They are aware of the ever-changing trends in the real estate market and provide their clients with friendly, professional and personalized service. One of these two full time real estate professionals is always available and they welcome evening and weekend calls.
Richter started thinking about real estate as a profession that would allow her to have more flexibility and to help her stay involved with her kids’ activities. Little did she know, it turned out to be all that and more. She commented, “There is nothing like the feeling of bringing a transaction together and getting the satisfaction of handing a buy the keys to their new home.”
