Seventy four students in the L.B.J. & C. Smithville Head Start Program received certificates during a graduation ceremony held Monday at the county complex auditorium.
Parents and other family members and friends turned out for the program which featured the children singing songs including ”Goodbye Friends” and dancing to the recording of “Get Funky”.
Students in each of the four classes wore graduation caps and came to the podium to receive their certificates as their names were called by the teachers.
Director Cathy Shehane read a graduation poem in honor of the students.
“A child is like a butterfly in the wind. Some can fly higher than others, but each one flies the best it can. Why compare one against the other? Each one is different. Each one is special. Each one is beautiful.”
