Antigo set to go with outdoor graduation
space
Organizers say the weather has been triple-checked and its a go for the first-ever graduation ceremony at the venerable Schofield Stadium on Sunday.

Antigo High School has traditionally held its ceremonies inside stuffy and often very warm gymnasiums. The outside location-although carrying a few weather concerns—should be ideal with temperatures predicted in the mid-80s.

The ceremony will begin at 2 p.m. and will feature a mix of music, messages and moments special to the graduating class.

Guests will be seated as the Antigo High School band, under the direction of Jeff Dewey, performs Aces of the Air, The Thunderer, Chesford Portrait and Wisconsin, Forward and Forever by John Phillip Sousa.

The seniors will enter the stadium to the traditional Pomp and Circumstance.

Master of ceremonies will be Evelyn Olsen, junior class president.

Following the national anthem, performed by senior band and choir members, senior class president Beth Lee will present welcoming remarks.

That will be followed by the presentation of the Distinguished Alumnus Award by District Administrator Dr. Colleen Timm. It will go to Judy (Hafemeister)) Peterson, now of White Lake, who has spent her life involved in a variety of community and youth causes, including Kettlebowl ski hill and the White Lake Area Historical Society.

Music will continue with Canto Voce and senior choir members performing May It Be.

Pia Spychalla, valedictorian, and Wade Farmer, salutatorian, will received their Gold A’s for achievement from Principal Tom Zamzow. They will also each give an address.

Meghan Bussiere, National Honor Society president, will reach the list of seniors in that honor organization while instructor Kelly Krugel will present the top quarter of the class.

School board members will be on hand to present diplomas.

The ceremony will be nearing its conclusion with the graduation finale, where senior class officers turn the tassels on their caps to signify the switch from student to graduation. Lee will be joined by Bradley Westen, vice-president; Emma Jansen, secretary; and Holden Meidl, treasurer.

The graduates will leave the stadium to Richard Wagner’s Coronation March, another Antigo tradition.

That evening, AHS seniors are invited to the graduation lock-in, running from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. at North Star Lanes. There will be free food, prizes, music, bowling, pool and Texas Hold ’em.
