The Kimball Class of 2013 tossed their mortarboards in the air after being proclaimed “graduated.” Earlier in the evening, Alissa Jones, Hannah Zipoy, and Jonathan Bisila gave speeches about the past, present, and future of the class. School board members Tom Schreiner and Tim Zipoy distributed diplomas to the new graduates, including to their daughters Paiten Schreiner and Hannah Zipoy. Superintendent John Tritabaugh was superintendent for Torey Rohloff’s graduation this year, and for Torey’s father Todd (from ACGC) some years ago. There are five Kimball Area families with graduates from both high school and elementary: the Blanchards, Foxes, Schreiners, Traurigs, and Wills all had graduates from 12th grade and 6th grade on Thursday, May 30, 2013. Congratulations to all! Staff photo by Jean Doran Matua.
