Students graduating from Orangewood High School each had challenges to overcome, and they celebrated their collective success during commencement ceremonies on Tuesday, June 4, at the Redlands Bowl. There were 88 graduating seniors at the continuing education school. The school allows students who have fallen behind in accumulating enough credits for graduation to catch up to earn their degrees. It was the 52nd Orangewood High School graduation class. “Our students appreciate every step of the way and they don’t take anything for granted,” said Carol Ruhm, the principal who has worked at the school since 1996. “Students take pride because they actually graduate twice. “The first time is when we announce they have earned enough credits to graduate. “I see a sense of joy and a little bit of relief when I look at their faces. It’s my favorite part of the job.” Sarah Coleman, one of the student speakers, said the four years at Orangewood were the hardest and best years of her life. “Some of us left home, some of us lost loved ones, some of us lost support, and some of us felt lost,” Coleman said. Conner Trimble, the other speaker, talked about the school’s mascot, the Dragons and the relationship to the school motto, FIRE. “We can all use FIRE to grow,” Trimble said. FIRE stands for Future, Inquiry, Responsibility and Education. Ruhm said Orangewood earned full accreditation for the next six years. The school has also been honored by the state as a Model Continuation High School.
