Oregon High School seniors said goodbye to high school Sunday, June 9, at the school’s graduation ceremony in the gymnasium.

With the stands filled in both the upper and lower decks, students heard from district leaders and three of their fellow students encouraging them in their futures.

Principal Jim Pliner, who began at the school the same year these students were freshmen, told them they would be missed.

“Congratulations to you all,” Pliner said. “I love you, 2019.”

Students Emmanuelle Hannibal, Grayden Gruchow and Isabelle Krier each offered their advice for growing in the future. Hannibal encouraged seeking out people with different opinions, Gruchow spoke about the importance of relationships and kindness and Krier recalled how they overcame the fear they had beginning high school — so they can overcome anything that’s ahead.
