Lonedell School conducted its annual graduation ceremony Saturday afternoon in the gymnasium as 39 eighth-graders received diplomas. Before the commencement exercises, students prepared for the big occasion in one of the classrooms and then waited for the processional to begin. Above, Ryan Borrini, second from the left, crosses his arms and sneaks a peek at the camera as he waits with some classmates for the ceremony to begin. Also pictured are, from left, Austin Reese, Zachary Long, Kyle Frankenberg, Trenton Martin and Dalton Brissette. More pictures of Lonedell's graduation can be viewed on The Missourian's website.
