District Winter Graduation Held At Springfield Center
Posted on 01/17/2020

The Robertson County Schools Winter Graduation was held on January 12, 2020 at 3 pm at the Center in Springfield, TN. Graduates entered to Pomp and Circumstance played by the Robertson County Community Band. This was followed by the national anthem and pledge as colors were presented by the Robertson County Air Force Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, and a welcome from Dr. Chris Causey, Director of Schools.

Following the playing of Holst’s Jupiter by the band, the Hon. Melanie Stark, Robertson County Juvenile Court Magistrate delivered a special address to the graduates. This was followed by honors and recognitions by Dr. Bob Pruitt, Supervisor of Secondary Education.

Graduates with Honors (cumulative gpa of 3.5 or greater) included Caleb Isaac Davaloz, Hunter Logan Engel, Cody Thomas Heatherly, Marisa Jolie Hubbard, Colton Clint Jones, Abby Lynn Leavitt, Sean Allen Mason, Margaret Mary Merchant, Lauren Elizabeth Pate, Karen Yulissa Ramirez-Gil, Megan Rhea Rives, Mara Jacqueline Rodriguez, Aaliyah Paige Searcy, Olivia Raven Sidor, Evan Andrew Smith, Morgan Grace Smith, Stacey Trejo Rubio, and Hannah Marie Mae Wilson.

Graduates with state honors (meeting all four ACT college readiness benchmarks) included Caleb Isaac Davaloz, Hunter Logan Engel, Cody Thomas Heatherly, Colton Clint Jones, Margaret Mary Merchant, Lauren Elizabeth Pate, Morgan Grace Smith, and Dalton Blake Thurman.

Graduates with distinction (a 3.0 minimum gpa while completing at least 12 hours of university coursework) included Hunter Logan Engel, Colton Clint Jones, Abby Lynn Leavitt, Lauren Elizabeth Pate, Olivia Raven Sidor, Morgan Grace Smith, and Hannah Marie Mae Wilson.

Three Greenbrier honor students: Hunter Logan Engel, Aaliyah Paige Searcy, and Olivia Raven Sidor, while listed in the program, were not announced at the graduation ceremonies.  Their achievements bring honor and distinction to their schools, the district, and themselves, and they deserve the recognition afforded to all those graduates achieving high academic levels.

Engel was also honored as the singular Tennessee Scholar (high levels of academic performance accompanied by many hours of community service), recipient of the evening.

Following academic recognitions, the 82 graduates were then given their diplomas by their building principals. Dr. Causey closed the ceremony with the conferral of diplomas and presided over the tassel moving tradition for the graduates.
