Five hundred and twelve Richmond Hill High School seniors closed one door and opened another as they accepted their high school diplomas at the 2019 graduation ceremony Saturday in the Savannah Civic Center.
The graduates closed the door on their high school days and opened one that will lead them on adventures that will include, to name a few, the military, college, the workplace or technical schools.
The graduates heard from their class salutatorian and valedictorian, Beth Belfield and Lucas Henrique, respectively, before crossing the stage and receiving their diplomas from school superintendent Dr. Paul Brooksher, RHHS principal Debi McNeal and chairman of the board of education Amy Murphy, to the hoots and hollers of family and friends at the ceremony.
Both urged their classmates to become involved in the world around, regardless of what path their lives take. They were urged to become “citizens of the world.”
Following the presentation of the certificates, the RHHS chorus sang the school alma mater.
