Graduation

"Brothers through it all"

We are proud of the 206 young men who will graduate as members of the Elder High School Class of 2020! With their time now etched permanently in the 98-year history of the school, they are sent forth forever striving for Altiora, the higher things, and well-equipped to make a difference in the world.

We invite you to attend virtually our graduation ceremonies via online streaming video (weather-permitting) by clicking on whichever date(s) below that you prefer. The Ceremony Schedules button will provide you with an alphabetical listing of our graduates alongside their select day and time of graduation. Each broadcast will start live at 4:30 P.M. and feature salutatory and valedictory speeches, as well as a welcome by Principal Kurt Ruffing.

Good and Gracious God...

How wonderful are the works of Your hands.

As we celebrate a step forward into new places with new people and new experiences, let us not forget the blessings You graced us with these last four years.

For Elder High School, which has given us a safe place to learn and a strong foundation to build upon as we take this next step into Your world.

For our teachers, who have so richly loved and cared for us, during both good and bad times.

For our families, who have cheered us on to the finish line and stood by our side’s through the many bumps in the road.

And on this day especially, we thank You for the friends that we have found among our classmates. For all the jokes that we will laugh about in years to come, for the hardships and tears we have endured together side by side, and for Your Love which has been made evident through the relationships we will carry with us beyond these walls.

Just as our school motto says, let us strive for the higher things just as You showed us as you gave up Your life for each of us. Let us love each other fearlessly and seek Your will all the days of our lives.

In Your Name we pray, Amen.
