2018 Graduates Enjoy the Education Awards Banquet
By: Yvette McGeshick, Education Director
The Sokaogon Education Department’s Annual Education Awards Banquet was last Thursday, June 14th, and celebrated the great work done this year by all our students.
The afternoon started off with a prayer for the accomplishments by the students and for the food given by Tribal Elder Sandra Rachel. Everyone enjoyed a fantastic meal of pork and gravy with mashed potatoes, and a kids’ favorite, spaghetti.
We were fortunate to receive a few words of honest wisdom from one our high school graduates, Walter Panick, IV. He spoke of the importance of having fun during your high school years, yet at the same time, to make sure you are doing your best to get those good grades because it will make a difference later on when you want to attend college or get a good job.
We offer congratulations to our graduates:
Burton Polar, Jr.
A Shen Ni McGeshick
Troy Soldier, Jr.
Craig (Michael) Justice
Walter Panick IV
Students and Parents – Keep in mind that although we are in the midst of a beautiful summer, keep reading!
Chi Miigwech to Sandra for the good words, to Randy Fisher for the excellent service, to Sonya for the beautiful table settings, and to Walter for those truthful thoughts; you did a great job. Miigwech to Rachel Vodar, Sokaogon Home/School Coordinator, for her emcee skills for the remainder of the banquet.
Congratulations to all of our graduates on their accomplishments! We wish you all the best!
