Brac graduates 22 students

Twenty-two students graduating from Layman E. Scott Sr. High School saw a large turnout by residents at the Aston Rutty Civic Centre on Saturday.

Stacie Scott, a 2008 Brac graduate and guest speaker for the night, encouraged graduates to set their dreams and, with hard work and determination, they could all succeed.

“Under your seats, each of you will find a piece of puzzle. Each piece represents you. And putting them together, you’ll make the world,” Ms. Scott said.

Headmaster Adrian Jones spoke of the school’s continued success and said that the community could be proud of the 2015 graduates.

After a musical item by the Layman Scott Sr. High School Choir, led by Cassandra Scott, Joanna Tibbetts and Tamishura Dilbert gave the valedictory address. Minister of Education Tara Rivers also had some sound advice for students, making reference to the success of the world’s fastest sprinter, Usain Bolt. “First there is a dream, and with hard work and persistence dreams can become reality,” she said.

Speaker of the House Juliana O’Connor-Connolly, Minister of Tourism Moses Kirkconnell and Brac District Commissioner Ernie Scott presented students with diplomas, certificates and awards.
