The Andrew Stuart Johnson Memorial High School graduation took place in Thetford Mines on June 16. The ceremony was held at the school and was followed by dinner and dancing at the Auberge Mi-Chemin. Students arrived in vehicles of all types, including a 1910 Ford.

There was a total of 17 graduates – five from our Pathways Program and 12 from Secondary 5. This group can be characterized as co-operative, responsible and hard-working. They will be missed.

Several prizes and bursaries were given out during the evening. The Lampe Foundation prize went to Odile Nadeau. The prize from the Parents’ Committee for Volunteerism went to Kassandra Smith. The McGill Social Studies scholarship went to Jessie-Leigh Vallée and the McGill Science scholarship went to Odile Nadeau. The Megantic English-speaking Community Development Corporation (MCDC) bursary was given to three recipients this year: Casandra Vachon, Odile Nadeau and Alyson Brochu-Bergeron.
