WESTBROOK, Minnesota (STPNS) -- WWG — Thirty seven seniors will conclude a 13 year journey of formal education, and will go out into the world to meet new challenges in their life pursuits. As they leave as high school graduates, their paths will lead each of them in different directions as they pursue adventures that are called life in the real world.
Some will pursue higher education of four years or more, while others will attend community colleges where they will learn practical skills. Others will go straight into the work force — in agriculture or other pursuits, and others will serve their country in the military. No matter what their ambitions, it will be a day of great joy and sadness knowing that for some it may be the last time they might see each other again.
Commencement ceremonies will begin in the high school gymnasium at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, May 28.
The prelude will be performed by Jacob Kleven and Joel Byers.
The seniors will march in two by two to the strains of Ployhar & Elgar’s Fanfare and Processional played by the WWG band. The band will then play the National Anthem. Following that the band will play the school song, Go U Northwestern.
Next on the program is the senior slide show produced by the senior class.

Following that the vocal number See You Again will be performed by the high school choir under the direction of Mr. Luke Nelson. It will be followed by the high school band performing Medley from Schreck directed by Mrs. Crystal Sonsalla.
