Ninth-graders commit to graduate

Sumner Hill students (large group)

This morning, ninth-graders at Sumner Hill Junior High School pledged to graduate on time from Clinton High School as part of the class of 2023. Keynote speaker Rosemary Aultman, member of the Mississippi Board of Education and former Clinton mayor, encouraged students to "be more," and work hard to achieve their goals. During the ceremony, all ninth-graders signed a pledge committing to graduate. The banner will hang at Sumner Hill this school year and follow the students to Clinton High School where it will be prominently displayed until May 2023.
