27 Students Graduate May 14
On Saturday, May 14th, Nebraska Christian Schools held its commencement ceremony to honor and celebrate the graduates of the class of 2016.
The commencement began with the processional of the class of 2016. The students in the class of 2016 are: Aaron An, Christina Bailey, Katie Cumpston, Noah Dexter, Zachary Dockweiler, Logan Faeh, Carson Falk, Whitney Heuermann, Susan Hofmann, Alexis Hower, Nolan Kohmetscher, Cameron Langemeier, Makenna Loy, Tara Murphy, Matthew Myers, Jackson Nelson, Duc Nguyen, Martin Nguyen, Phillip Nguyen, George Nguyen, Cassidy Ostrand, Skyler Qu, Dillon Rose, Trevor Swanson, Panny Wang, Albert Yang, and Isabella Yang.
After the procession of the class of 2016, Mr. Joshua Cumpston, the superintendent of Nebraska Christian, spoke and welcomed the visitors and parents who came to the commencement. Mr. Doug Langemeier gave an invocation, and the Nebraska Christian Choir sang “The Lord Is My Light.” Three of the seniors spoke at the commencement: Alexis Hower, Cassidy Ostrand, and Katie Cumpston.
Following another choir number, State of Nebraska Attorney General Doug Peterson gave the commencement address. He challenged the class to allow God to use them wherever they go, whether they travel the world, attend a prestigious university, or spend the rest of their lives raising a family in their hometown, and not to slip into the mindset that God only uses those who are successful by the world’s standards.
Then, with assistance from Nebraska Christian board members, Mr. Joshua Cumpston presented the class of 2016 with their diplomas.
“It is hard to say goodbye to my dearest friends; however, I think all of the graduates are ready to step on to their next journeys. I really appreciated all the good memories that NC has brought to me, and I want to encourage all students to seize the days and learn more about Christ when they are at NC,” said Isabella Yang, who attended Nebraska Christian for three years.
