The school celebrated its 98 seniors with a graduation ceremony to remember on Friday night.
It was all pomp and circumstance during The First Academy's 28th graduation ceremony held at the worship center at First Baptist Church Orlando Friday, May 21.
The event began with a welcome message from School Board Chairman Clark Keator, before Dr. David Uth — senior pastor of First Baptist Orlando — offered an invocation. What followed were a short number of speeches, which included salutatorian Katie Bonnett and valedictorian Lauren Spalding.
By the end of the night's ceremony, 98 seniors walked across the stage to receive their diplomas before the traditional turning of the tassel.
