64 Osakis High School graduates accepted their diplomas Saturday afternoon in the Osakis High School gym in celebration of their accomplishments and in recognition of what is ahead of them.

The ceremony featured senior addresses from Jena Backes (past), Miranda Petrich (present) and Glenn Seela (future), band and choir performances, award and scholarship presentations and, of course, the presentation of the diplomas before Morgan Staloch closed it out with the farewell speech.

Performances included "True Light" by the Osakis High School Choir, "Novena Rhapsody" by the concert band, "Heaven" by the seniors in the choir and "March Triumphant" by the concert band as the graduates made their way out.
