Graduates leave BHS, Baker
May 26, 2005
Baldwin City was a busy place Saturday and Sunday as Baldwin High School and Baker University celebrated its annual commencements for the class of 2005. BHS held its graduation on Saturday night, as it packed the Baldwin Junior High School gym full of family and friends. A total of 93 graduates crossed the stage to receive their diplomas. “I already had a feeling of being done with school, but that signified being done,” senior Kyle Ruona said. “I don’t think it was anything I hadn’t felt all day. But I felt better once I handed in my cap and gown, because I had my diploma.” BHS seniors Jason Mock and Luke Halford each gave speeches representing the class. Halford had one simple message for the class, “Hakuna Matata,” which means no worries.
