Family and friends of the graduates from Pacific Coast School gathered in the Museum of Northern B.C. on June 18 to celebrate the Class of 2014.

Following a blessing by Alex Campbell and a dinner, the 14 students from Prince Rupert’s alternate school made their way down the aisle to the traditional drumming and singing of Marlene Clifton. Following speeches from MLA Jennifer Rice, mayor Jack Mussallem, trustee Barb Gruber, superintendent Sandy Jones and Aboriginal Education Council chair Debbie Leighton-Stephens, Const. Matt Ericson addressed the students after being selected by the group as the keynote speaker.

The final words came from valedictorians Jodie Brown and Leon Miller before Pacific Coast School principal Susan Kobza and past-principal Sandy Pond handed out the diplomas and flipped the tassels to signify the completion of high school.
