Twenty-nine seniors – 28 from the regular high school and one from the alternative high school – will graduate from Tongue River High School this year.

Pete Kilbride, who's superintendent of Sheridan County School District 1, said graduation ceremonies will be at 6 p.m. Sunday in the high school gym.

Kilbride said 100 percent of the Tongue River senior class will graduate this year.

He said this year's is a smaller class, although not the smallest class to graduate from Tongue River. That distinction goes to the class of 2009 when there were 21 or 22 graduates. Kilbride said the number of Tongue River High School graduates is typically in the mid-30s.

Kilbride said scholarship recipients in the Class of 2019 will be announced during the graduation ceremonies, and the numbers aren't compiled yet. But, he said, at least 75 percent of the graduates have received Hathaway Scholarships.
