Purdy graduation scheduled for Sunday
Layne Skiles, Emily Webb named as top grads
Commencement exercises for the 45 members of the Class of 2018 at Purdy High School will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday in the high school gym.
Valedictorian will be Layne Skiles, daughter of Bill and Sarah Skiles. Salutatorian will be Emily Webb, daughter of Jason and Cheryl Webb. Both will speak during the ceremony.
Guest speaker will be Jeff Swadley, former elementary school principal.
This is the first time in recent memory that Purdy has held graduation on a Sunday. The date was changed from the usual Saturday timetable due to conflicts with state competitions for students.
