VIDEO: Congratulations, Seattle Lutheran High School Class of 2016!

On a breezy night in The Junction, the Seattle Lutheran High School Class of 2016 filed into the Menashe Family Gym for their graduation ceremony last night. This year’s senior class numbers 35; speakers at the ceremony included senior class president Alex Melchior and valedictorian Abbi Sanders, co-salutatorians JT Gallant and Aaron Peña, while ASB president Macey Crooks gave the closing prayer.

That cap seemed to be a nod to the class scripture, as featured in the program: II Timothy 4:7, “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” Other cap decorations we spotted outside:


The SLHS graduation was the first of our area’s three major commencement ceremonies this month – Chief Sealth International High School and West Seattle High School have their graduations back-to-back on June 21st at Southwest Athletic Complex, 5 and 8 pm respectively.
