Ascension 2020 Seniors Graduate in Delayed Ceremony

Ascension Leadership Academy held its 2020 graduation ceremony for four seniors on July 23, 2020, in the sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church in Talladega. Throughout the celebration, healthy spacing was maintained with all participants wearing masks. 

The seniors are: 

  • Kelsey Rice finished first in the class, but was unable to attend the ceremony. Kelsey received an Advanced Diploma and has earned college credit during his senior year. He took summer classes at Central Alabama Community College.
  • Tonya Peppers will be attending E. H. Gentry for further training and plans to pursue a career in daycare services for children.
  • Jordan Price, who finished second in class, plans to pursue a career in law enforcement.
  • Baylee Scearce used her time in quarantine since March to finish her high school credits a year early. She graduated with plans to attend Central Alabama Community College and study welding. 

PHFC President Doug Marshall and Director of Education Linda Harris officiated the ceremony. The Rev. Leeann Scarbrough of First Presbyterian Church delivered the keynote address. Music was provided by the very talented Mr. Christopher Henley, who is also a member of the Home’s Junior Board. 

The Home congratulates these hardworking seniors who have reached an important milestone during a difficult time.
