Project Graduation caps off the Senior's experience

group photos on field

Thanks to a committee of parents, Project Graduation was held on Jewell Field immediately following the Main Street Parade at the end of the school year. A huge variety of prizes were given out. The committee surprised the students with the featured musical guest, Elvie Shane, a popular country music singer.

Raised on gospel and Southern rock, modern-day country crooner Elvie Shane made a big splash with his 2020 debut single, "My Boy." An ode to his stepson, the song captured Shane's sentimental streak and his facility with soul, making for a distinctive beginning to his career.

A Kentucky native -- he was born in Caneyville -- Elvie Shane learned to love music by singing in church and listening to his father play country and classic rock at home. As he grew older, he was increasingly drawn to both the gospel and music. When he attended Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, he studied creative writing and English literature. 

Students enjoyed the special entertainment and also participated in all kinds of activities before the concert.
