Hermiston Online Program Celebrates First Graduating Class

Posted: Updated:

HERMISTON, Ore. - The first class of the online program at the Hermiston School District is celebrating its graduation.

The nine students who made up the Hermiston Online Class of 2013 joined the graduating class at Hermiston High School for the celebration this week.

Hermiston Online provides an alternative learning environment from the typical "bricks and mortar" classes of HHS.

Program graduates come from a spectrum of different situations. They include a student about to age-out of the public school system, teen mothers, and a junior who graduated early.

"Time management, taking responsibility, and having the initiative to log in and work every day," said Hermiston Online Coordinator Abby Mattson, "are why these students were so successful."
