MSLC honors its 2019 graduates at poignant ceremony

Mt. Scott Learning Center (MSLC) honored another outstanding group of high school graduates on Saturday, June 1, 2019 at Warner Pacific University’s McGuire Auditorium.

Forty-four MSLC students received diplomas at the annual graduation ceremony, which highlighted the individual and group accomplishments of the senior class. The highly poignant and reflective ceremony celebrated MSLC graduates through a variety of audio-visual presentations, speeches, and the traditional pomp and circumstance.

Following the graduate processional and opening welcome, the Graduate Reflections 2019 video was shown featuring some of this year’s graduates. In the video, graduates reflected on their experiences before and after coming to Mt. Scott, as well as their plans for after graduation. The powerful video showcased the uniqueness of the graduates and the community at MSLC.

Anna Rower and Marcos Turner were chosen by their peers as the ceremony’s student speakers and delivered inspiring and emotional speeches to the overflow crowd.

The Graduate Spotlights Slideshow was divided into three sections this year due to the large number of graduates. The slideshow video featured photos of each graduate mixed with a recorded personal reflection about that particular graduate from a staff person. (Links to this video, as well as all audio-visual presentations shown at the ceremony, are included on this page.)

Aaron Balogh, Dean of Students, and Megan Barrett, Manager of Curriculum and Instruction, presented the diplomas to rousing cheers and camera flashes from proud family members. Graduates then proceeded with the ceremonial flipping of their tassels and tossing of their graduate caps before leaving the auditorium to the song, “Good To Be Alive.” A reception for graduates and their families followed in the auditorium lobby.
