The Big Day
Eighty-six graduates, some smiling and others teary-eyed, crossed the stage to receive diplomas at Commencement Exercises in the Estherville Lincoln Central High School Sunday.
Graduates wore a new color scheme, girls red, guys black, compared to previous years when the entire class was donned in red.
The senior vocal ensemble, under the direction of Steve Bradburn, performed the traditional arrangement “You Raise Me Up” while the school band, under the direction of Laura Fix, played the processional, “Pomp and Circumstance” and recessional “Fanfair & Recessional.”
