On the night of Dec. 16 in the Stagelight Theatre, Bolton’s International Baccalaureate program held its annual pinning ceremony. In the past, it was held during the school day, but this year’s was held at six in the evening.

At the ceremony, the IB seniors from the prior year were recognized and those that met the requirements were awarded their official International Baccalaureate diploma. Also, the current IB seniors were awarded with certificates stating one of the ten IB learner profile traits that their teachers believe them to most represent; inquiring, knowledgeable, thinking, communicating, principled, open-minded, caring, risk-taking, balanced, or reflective.

They also received their IB pins. “It’s a nice celebration of our achievements,” said current senior, Jessie Colston.

Afterwards, a reception was held in the cafeteria with refreshments. The current seniors mingled with the former seniors, talking about the program. One current senior, Brett Freeman, said, “It was great to see the hard work of the [former] IB seniors paying off.” Another, Riley Douglas, said, “It’s encouraging to see how IB helped [the former seniors].”

The IB class of 2015 is excited to graduate and hopefully receive their IB diploma next year. Their biology teacher, Ted Maclin, encouraged them by saying, “Everyone has the potential to receive their diplomas.” Last year’s diploma receivement rate was 73.3%. We encourage this year’s IB students to set the bar even higher.

 

The current IB seniors crowd around the graduated IB seniors, including last year's valedictorian, Daniel Moore.
