What High School Graduation Means

Graduation allows a time for celebrating the achievements of the past four years and the excitement of what’s to come after high school.
Graduating from high school can also mean so much more. It can be a time to reflect on lessons learned and can also be a time to reflect on the parents, teachers, and mentors who helped each graduate get to the point they are at today.
Graduation is a celebration of the hard work of the graduates, parents, teachers, administrators, and staff.
Nebo School District thanks the inspirational speakers, valedictorians, salutatorians, and students across the district for making the Nebo District 2018 graduations a wonderful experience for everyone.
Congratulations to Nebo School District’s 2,198 graduating high school seniors that received over $18 million in scholarships.
