Mansfield Graduation returns after one-year hiatus The Chronicle MANSFIELD – Mansfield High School is planning its first graduation ceremony in two years. The small, rural school had no senior class last year, the first time that’s happened in the school’s history. This year, there are five: Monica Marks, Staci McDonald, Macen McLean, Kevin Peterman and Wade Udell. The class chose to keep the school colors as its own: Red, white and gold. Heading into the future, their motto comes from Ashleigh Brilliant: “Nothing we do changes the past, everything we do changes the future.” Seniors will take the stage for commencement at 4 p.m. June 7 in the high school gymnasium, 491 Road 14 N.E. As the 2014 salutatorian, McLean, 18, will be the class speaker. He is the son of Mike McLean and Misty McLean. Because the school bases its selection of valedictorian and salutatorian on pre-set grade-point averages, there is no valedictorian this year, senior class adviser Ric Bayless said.

During commencement, Bayless will continue the annual tradition of reading the “senior prophecy,” a humorous and touching
fictional glimpse into the future of each student. The ceremony also includes a slideshow,

Hamilton foundation names winners The Chronicle OKANOGAN — Hamilton Youth Foundation of Washington Tractor has named winners of its 2014 scholarships. Recipients are Apolinar Blanco and Jesus Rodriguez of Chelan, Drew Carleton of Manson, Miranda Cleveland of Okanogan, and Jamie Wilson and Amber Monroe of Tonasket.
Each will receive a $1,000 scholarship, the foundation said. The foundation was created in 1992 by Hamilton Farm Equipment as a way of giving back to the agricultural community it serves. Hamilton merged with Washington Tractor in 2012. Funding for the foundation comes primarily from a fixed percentage of Washington Tractor’s sales.
