More than 600 students graduated from Jefferson City High School on Sunday, in an outdoor ceremony at Adkins Stadium.
Principal Paul Dodson said 120 of Sunday's graduates came from the Jefferson City Academic Center, an alternative education center for high school students. More 160 graduates had earned recognition from various honor societies, including the National Honor Society, the National Music Honor Society, the National French Honor Society and the Hispanic Honor Society. More than 30 students graduated as salutatorians, earning more than 500 college credits combined.
"They have continued the traditions of excellence," Dodson said. "I extend my personal and sincere thanks for the opportunity to be a part of your class."
