Class of 2014 steps into the future

By Correspondent

NEW CASTLE – Members of the Craig County High School Class of 2014 took the first steps into their future on June 6.

It was a beautiful Friday evening when the 54 graduates received their diplomas from Principal Robert “Rowdy” Stump and Assistant Principal Marion Trumbo in ceremonies on the CCHS field. Graduates included Stump’s son, Matthew Caleb Stump, who was one of the members of the Beta Club identified by their gold tassels.BIGHaley BurgerAndDecoratedCapsWEB

Former acting school superintendent Chip Gray was the guest speaker. Class President Haley Burger welcomed the crowd before Valedictorian Levi Helm and Salutatorian Elizabeth Surface addressed their fellow students.

Helm quoted favorite children’s author Dr. Seuss, who wrote “Oh, the places you will go!”
Class of 2014 members Hannah Blevins, Caitlin Reynolds and Helm also performed a short music piece for the assembled students, families and friends.

Craig County School Superintendent Kelly Wilmore confirmed the students as new graduates of CCHS, as they turned their tassels to the other sides of their caps.

Teacher Jeanne Guthrie played the music for students to process into the stadium and to recess out of it.

Graduates’ future plans range from attending community college, such as Gina Bellassai, who will study at New River Community College, to Helm who plans to pursue biology or environmental studies at the University of Virginia. Others plan to start work right away.
