GRB recognizes top seniors at High Honor Ceremony

Fulton’s G. Ray Bodley High School recently honored its graduating seniors with a special High Honor Graduate Recognition Ceremony, formally recognizing its exceptional students completing high school with an overall average of 90 or above.

The ceremony was held in the GRB auditorium on the evening of June 5. Principal Nathan Murray opened the event by congratulating students for their success while also acknowledging the role of the greater community.

“There are very few paths to success that do not include family or friends,” Murray noted before turning the stage over to Tyler Terramiggi, the evening’s guest speaker.

Terramiggi, a 2012 GRB Graduate, shared his own story of struggle in his early years, his determination to rise above adverse circumstances and his ultimate personal success. He urged graduates toward accountability and audacity but also encouraged them to bear a sense of pride in their hometown of Fulton.

The ceremony honored graduating seniors achieving magna cum laude (GPA of 90 to 94.999) and summa cum laude (GPA of 95 or above). More than 85 students were honored in all, with each receiving a special pin and stole to be worn with their cap and gown at graduation.

Fulton’s annual graduation ceremony is Friday, June 14 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at G. Ray Bodley High School.
