CASH graduation Friday evening, 7 pm
Written by David Schaef

The Class of 2015 will graduate from Conneaut Area Senior High School Friday evening, June 5, at 7 p.m.

It is the third graduating class from CASH with some 140 students graduating in the Friday service - an event that in the Conneaut District has traditionally been held Friday nights and Saturdays. Last year’s class graduated on a Wednesday evening.

The school calendar for all Conneaut students ends June 5, and thus the graduation setup.

The top two students from each of the former school areas of Conneaut Lake, Conneaut Valley and Linesville that merged to form Conneaut Area Senior High will speak and take part in the formal program, fulfilling a promise made when merger talks were under way that the first three graduating classes would feature those top students.

Next year’s graduating class, the Class of 2016, will simply feature the top students from CASH. - the class being the first to only attend the 9 - 12 high school. Those students entered the school as freshmen.
