Seven students graduated from Brooksville Elementary School during a graduation ceremony on June 14 that featured memories, speeches, gifts and cake. Technology teacher David Davis addressed the class as guest speaker. Davis congratulated the students and shared with them a few words of wisdom as they move forward into the next chapter of their lives. Davis also told the students to look upon all challenges as learning opportunities, to value the relationships they make with people, and to make themselves knowl- edgeable before making decisions. The Brooksville education Foundation also presented the students with a book of their choosing, a tradition the foundation’s board of trustees has done for graduates of Brooksville elementary School for years. The seven graduates are, from left, Olivia Graves, Jack Gray, Misty Limeburner, Cole Lepper, Maeve McLaughlin, Sadie Cannon and Sofina Paz.
