Forty-one graduates will march to the processional call of “Pomp and Circumstance” as played by the Barr-Reeve High School Band under the direction of  Stephanie O’Brian.

The audience will be led in the “Pledge of Allegiance” by Class Treasurer Cori Cummings and Class Secretary Myron Stoll, followed by the Barr-Reeve High School Chorus performing “The Star Spangled Banner.”
