Grad 2017
Forty-two handsome lads and beautiful ladies from Crowsnest Consolidated High School got fancy and jolly at this year’s Banquet and Commencement Ceremony at the Crowsnest Pass Sports Complex on May 12. O Canada was gracefully led by Aislyn Wheelock and Matthew Kenney gave the valedictorian address. In a speech that made the audience laugh, reminisce and even gasp, guests speaker John Kerr’s words moved, inspired and hopefully left the students with a realization that life is sometimes tough, but always beautiful. Pictured above are (left to right) Trennan Shortreed, his date Karlie Stella and Simon Burke.
