Seniors posed for a group picture following the baccalaureate.

With graduation right around the corner, B-A held a baccalaureate for the graduating seniors on Sunday, May 21.

At the baccalaureate, Pastor Ashely Shook lead a sermon about wisdom, where he wanted seniors to leave reflecting on this quote, “When wisdom is neglected, trouble is to be expected.”

Class of 2023 class officers and FCA officers joined in the baccalaureate, leading prayers and Bible verses for the graduating seniors.

Senior Maliah Hassler enjoyed the baccalaureate.

“It was nice being with everybody before we graduate,” she said. “I really enjoyed Pastor Shook’s sermon, and I’m glad I went.”

The B-A choir sang hymns during the baccalaureate, immediately following their spring chorus concert, where the seniors performed their senior song, “Go The Distance”

The concert was originally postponed due to power outages, but was rescheduled for yesterday May 21st where the choir performed acapella, duets, solos, and ensemble performances.

B-A chorus veteran Avery Turek felt bittersweet about performing her last chorus concert.

“It was nice to be able to sing with my friends one last time,” she exclaimed. “I’m ready and excited for the next part in all of our lives.”

The B-A music program will be competing this Sunday, May 28 at the Isaacs Award ceromony. To purchase tickets, see Mr. Zachary Spaw.

The Class of 2023’s commencement ceremony is set to be held on May 31 at Memorial Stadium.
