After years of hard work and sacrifice, the 2018 graduating class at Ecole Secondaire Lacombe Composite High School walked the stage to complete their high school journey.

“I think this is a really exciting day for our students, parents, guardians, other family members, friends and of course the Lacombe Composite High School staff,” Lacombe Composite principal Valerie Yaremchuk said.

Yaremchuk was excited to share the many different positive facets of this grad class.

“This is a well-rounded grad class,” she said. “They are great people; they are athletic; they are academic; and they are leaders in all kinds of areas. We are going to miss them.”

They did the Alberta student leadership conference, which they were a big part of. The put on a wellness week for mental health week,” she said. “They have made significant, positive contributions to Lacombe Composite High School and also to the Lacombe community.
