The Minisinaakwaang community came together on June 4 to celebrate the graduation of Molly Bohanon from Minisinaakwaang Leadership Academy.
Vince Merrill gave a welcome and invocation in Ojibwe, and MLA Director Marysue Anderson (who happens to be the graduate’s mom) spoke with pride about the school as a dream made real by District II Band members. Michaa Aubid, one of Molly’s teachers, shared fond memories about Molly’s performance in the classroom.
School Board Chair Taria White presented Molly with her diploma, and Molly thanked those in attendance for coming and showing their support.
Indian tacos were served following the ceremony.
Several community members came in graduation caps and gowns to emphasize the value of education.
Molly plans to attend Edgewood College in Madison, Wisconsin, which she chose for its strong science program.
