The torch was passed to the Junior Class at Riverdale’s commencement exercises a week ago. Members of the class took the responsibilities the grads of 2019 had filled for the past year. Then on Monday of this week the Junior Class took another step when they were presented with their senior rings.
There are thirteen members of the Class of 2020. All wore senior shirts for the presentation. Parents or friends of each Junior presented them their ring and placed it on their finger.
A slide presentation at the beginning of the ceremony took a look at each student, and usually included baby pictures and a brief biographical sketch of each and a favorite saying. When the rings were presented there was another slide of the student with a favorite memory or moment from their time at Riverdale.
Members of the Riverdale Academy Class of 2020 are Morgan Alexander, Brooklyn Azlin, Tylar Bare, Dayton Brown, Adam Bryant, Georgia Dowdy, Malea Edwards, Dakota Gryder, Bailee King, Heidi Murray, Justin Oliver, Bailey Pate, and Jackson Riggs.
