LAS celebrates 31 grads


A LAST HURRAH–was seen at L’Anse Area School last week during graduation on Thursday, May 30, as the 31 graduates tossed their caps in the air and received hugs and congratulations amongst falling balloons for having completed this milestone and start a new chapter in their lives.

Though this year’s L’Anse High School (LHS) graduating class was small at 31 students, the celebration was huge and there was much joy and congratulations in the air as the class of 2024 gathered in the gymnasium for the last time to receive their diplomas last week. The evening was warm and beautiful on Thursday, May 30 as the L’Anse Area School (LAS) gym bleachers filled up with guests and the class of 2024 lined up by the gym doors waiting for the ceremony to begin at 7 p.m. LHS band members and Director Aaron Poniatowski started the program with James D. Ployhar’s “Fanfare & Processional,” announcing the
senior’s entrance. To read more, subscribe to the L’Anse Sentinel online, or buy a print copy at our local retailers.
