Graduations keep good news rolling

Graduation season continued last week and is nearing its end, as local students celebrate the end of one chapter of their lives and begin the next.

Before we begin the week ahead, let’s take a look back at some of the highlights from last week:

• Students from Adams County Christian School, Cathedral High School and Trinity Episcopal Day School all walked across the stage and accepted their diplomas. The ceremonies last week gave the area a total of 99 students graduating high school. We congratulate all the students and wish them the best.

• Vidalia High School valedictorian Jacob Wilkinson was pleasantly surprised to learn he earned the top spot in his graduating class, but didn’t let the title get between him and the classmates he’s gone to school with since kindergarten. Wilkinson will attend Louisiana Tech in the fall, where he will study chemical engineering. We congratulate Wilkinson on his success.

• The Vidalia Feed the Hungry program received good news from the Kansas City Barbecue Society. The group has committed to donating one pork butt for each team that signs up for the annual Jim Bowie BBQ Throwdown in Vidalia. The donation is part of a nationwide effort by KCBS to help food banks and other charitable entities. The Vidalia organization plans to sell the donated meat to help raise money to pay for repairs to their facility. We’re glad to see an organization that’s vital to the community get some needed help.

Let’s remember to take a moment today on Memorial Day to remember the fallen men and women who died serving our country.
