It was a beautiful Saturday night on the Shelbyville High School football field, where 76 Shelbyville seniors walked across the platform to graduate.
The 2021 Shelbyville High School Commencement was broadcast live on WSVZ Cruisin' 98.3.
The Shelbyville High School Band provided the traditional Pomp and Circumstance, and graduate Rachel Throneburg gave the Invocation. Following a welcome from principal Kyle Ladd, Senior Students of the Month and the Senior Student of the Year were announced by Superintendent Shane Schuricht. Rachel Throneburg was named Senior Student of the Year, receiving a scholarship. The Student of the Month Program is co-sponsored by WSVZ Cruisin' 98.3 and Family Drug.
Top Ten in the Senior Class and Seniors entering the military were all honored, followed by the Salutatorian speech by Shelbyville senior Mikayla Boehm who told graduates that commencement is the first stepping stone in her adult life.
The Shelbyville High School Valedictorian, Kade Kull, then gave his remarks telling the seniors and big crowd assembled at the football field that COVID was the big curve ball thrown at all of them.
Ladd then announced the students individually for their traditional walk across the platform.
S-H-S Senior Dalton Hoadley gave the Benediction, and the Shelbyville High School Class of 2021 was officially announced with caps flying.
It was the second year WSVZ Cruisin' 98.3 broadcast the event live.
