The PLT Middle School graduated its fifty 8th graders on Tuesday night during ceremonies in the PLT gym.


The students entered to "Pomp and Circumstance" played by the Prophet Pride Band under the direction of Jane Davis.  With hoots and hollers and cell phone cameras in almost every hand, the class took their seats at the west end of the gym in front of family, friends, and teachers.


Student Council President, Brinley Tucker, gave a welcome speech and said that she and and her classmates are excited to see what experiences lie ahead for them in high school.  


Principal Steve Kastorff recognized class members who had participated in any extra-curricular activities during their middle school careers.  20 members of the class of 2022 were recognized for achieving honor roll for all three years at  the middle school and were given certificates to mark the accomplishment.


Both the band and the choir gave final performances with the 8th graders as well.


Individual awards were presented to three members of the class.  Larry VanDyke, Commander of Prophetstown American Legion Post #522 presented the American Legion School Medal to Connor Sibley and Brinley Tucker.  The award is voted on by their classmates and based on the individuals' Citizenship, Honor, Patriotism, Leadership, and Service.
