Both the Green Devil and Wildcat senior students were recently met with their final high school chapter. Superintendent of Riceville and Osage school districts Barb Schwamman helped throw both schools a ‘final day’ bash that included a small in-person graduation. Over in Riceville on May 13th, Schwamman says the event went perfectly.
In Osage, the event was a bit larger and flashier. Last Friday, the seniors were met with a huge reception from the residents of Osage – as they created an estimated 1,000 car long parade for social distanced Green Devils.
That day, the students were able to also participate in a small group graduation ceremony – which involved being able to team up with their closest friends.
The night ended with a 4th of July-esque firework display – courtesy of Flashing Thunder Fireworks.
Schwamman has Osage’s in-person graduation ceremony pegged for June 21st (Father’s Day) – and Riceville is planned tentatively for June 28th.
