Somewhere some one is humming the melody of “Mrs. Robinson.”

It’s just the Simon and Garfunkel song from the Dustin Hoffman coming-of-age moive and bears no resemblance to the “Fanfare” by Elgar/Ploylhar processional and recessional music heard at high school commencements everywhere this spring.

At least not among the high school graduates from area high schools.

Here are some glimpses of crent commencements:

Blooming Prairie High School graduates 58 seniors Sunday, June 1.

Mary Worke, counselor, will introduce commencement speakers: valedictorian Kristin Wanous and salutatorian Sarah Maus.

The senior class chose “My Wish” by Rascal Flats as their class song.

The class motto was “Faces of old and faces of new, people we know and people we knew. Growing together then drifting apart, always an ending, but now a new start.” Their class flower is the daisy and class color is silver.

Worke will join Blooming Prairie school board members Jeff McCabe and Rodney Krell in presenting diplomas to the graduates.
