Pinewood seniors celebrate
PCA graduates toss their caps after
ceremony Sunday

Pinewood Christian Academy held commencement exercises on Sunday, May 17, presenting 37 graduates with a high school diploma.
Headmaster Harold Roach says the hour-long ceremony went well. “The people were very, very respectful. It was done with a lot of respect and care,” he said. “Both valedictorian and salutatorian had nice speeches.” 
Court of Appeals Judge John Ellington served as the keynote speaker. “Judge John Ellington did a very good job … it was not excessively long. He stayed within our framework of time which worked out great,” Roach continued.
A Pinewood tradition continued another year as the Parker family presented Bibles to each senior. The tradition was begun by longtime PCA supporters Mr. and Mrs. Albert Parker, both now deceased. Their son, Dale Parker, and other family members continued the tradition.
The children of four Pinewood board members graduated this year and were given the opportunity to present their students with a diploma.  “As a tradition we allow the board members to come up and present their children with a diploma,” Roach said.
