This is a week that some parents dread, and some students are very much looking forward to: it's graduation week and the last week of school. Doctor Lynn Baker, Principal at Summit High says this week they will bid adieu to about 265 seniors, and this class is a special one. "We have, for the first time ever, a student with perfect attendance this year. All through 13 years of public school. And then we have another student who got a perfect score of 36 on the ACT this year, so it's a special class." Dr. Baker says with each year he's noticed an increasing number of kids who commit to post high school studies, and says this year up to 85% of students will go on. Summit's graduation ceremony is Saturday night at the Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center, and it will be televised on COTV.

And about that perfect attendance….

A Summit High School senior will receive recognition at graduation this Saturday for an impressive accomplishment. Her name is Lindsay Fox: “I have never missed a day of school since kindergarten. For 13 years I’ve had perfect attendance.” Lindsay says she loves school and just didn't want to miss any of it.  She plans to attend the University of Oregon this fall and study childhood education. She hopes to become a kindergarten teacher.
