The Friday night before Grier’s Commencement Ceremony, seniors, their families, junior servers, and Grier faculty gathered for an evening of dinner, performances, and Candlelight Ceremony in the Courtyard. During the dinner, held inside Grier’s gymnasium, Annie G., Linnea K., Linden M., Nora V., and Flora W., members of Grier’s National Honor Society, gave speeches reflecting their personal experiences at Grier and offering inspiration to their classmates for the future ahead. Senior musicians and dancers performed in the Dance Building. Here, too, NHS members Karyna C., Iris H., Sara H., Katie M., and Lillian Z. gave their commencement speeches. Finally, the group of seniors and their junior servers gathered in a circle in the Courtyard for a special tradition: the Candlelight Ceremony.
