GRB Recognizes Top Seniors At High Honor Ceremony

FULTON – Fulton’s G. Ray Bodley High School recently honored its graduating seniors with a special High Honor Graduate Recognition Ceremony, formally recognizing its exceptional students completing high school with an overall average of 90 or above.

The ceremony was held in the GRB auditorium on the evening of June 5. Principal Nathan Murray opened the event by congratulating students for their success while also acknowledging the role of the greater community.

“There are very few paths to success that do not include family or friends,” Murray noted before turning the stage over to Tyler Terramiggi, the evening’s guest speaker.

Terramiggi, a 2012 GRB Graduate, shared his own story of struggle in his early years, his determination to rise above adverse circumstances and his ultimate personal success. He urged graduates toward accountability and audacity but also encouraged them to bear a sense of pride in their hometown of Fulton.

The ceremony honored graduating seniors achieving magna cum laude (GPA of 90 to 94.999) and summa cum laude (GPA of 95 or above). More than 85 students were honored in all, with each receiving a special pin and stole to be worn with their cap and gown at graduation.

Fulton’s annual graduation ceremony is Friday, June 14 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at G. Ray Bodley High School.

  1. Congratulations to these brilliant young adults. Make yourself proud of the decisions you make as you go forward in life. I am sure your families are already proud of your hard work and decision.

    On another note please don’t fall to peer pressure today, tomorrow or ever. Please celebrate your graduation and don’t boycott as some people are asking on social media. The day is about all of you and not just the anger of one family over one decision. The community has and still does support you. Celebrate, rejoice and savor the moment. Your peers will be there in spirit despite not graduating. Mourn your loss of three classmates later and honor them at your parties and the rest of your lives. You deserve to celebrate just as much. Stand up for your rights as well. Every child matters at this graduation and every other graduation. You cannot have chairs for every family member that every student has lost.
