Bucyrus Senior Awards and Baccalaureate ceremonies set for May 28
Posted on 05/20/2015

Bucyrus High School will honor its graduating seniors during a special ceremony at 6:30 p.m. in the Alex Kish Memorial gymnasium May 28. Following the Senior Awards activities, a student-led baccalaureate service will be held.

The Senior Awards night is an annual ceremony where seniors are recognized for outstanding accomplishments during their high school career. It's also an evening where students receive scholarships from local and regional organizations.

"The Senior Awards program is a great lead-in to our graduation ceremony," Secondary School Principal Dr. Mark Burke said. "We are very proud of the many accomplishments of the Class of 2015, and this ceremony gives us the opportunity to showcase those feats."

Shortly after the conclusion of the Senior Awards program, the annual student-led baccalaureate service will begin in the Kish gymnasium. This special student organized activity, sponsored by the Bucyrus Ministerial Fellowship, will feature many community members, as well as graduating seniors sharing inspirational readings, songs and scriptures.

"Every year, our seniors do a fantastic job organizing and leading the baccalaureate service," Dr. Burke said. "Students selected community members, making this an even more special night for our seniors and the community."

Pastor Mike Corwin will lead the invocation and benediction, and Pastor Dan Rebon will deliver the message to the students and visitors in attendance. A reception with cake and punch will follow the ceremony.
