Tiny students launch to big futures in Brighton

Graduation02BRIGHTON — Some children were too excited to stay still. Others were so shy they could barely speak. But after plenty of cheerful songs and a heartfelt congratulation speech from Chairman James E. Billie, all graduates of the Brighton Preschool class of 2014 proudly marched dressed in cap and gown regalia across the stage and confidently into the next stage of life.

Twenty future prekindergarten students made a memorable mark on a packed house of cheering parents, grandparents and siblings May 14 at the Brighton Veteran’s Building. Each gave thanks in the Creek language of their ancestors. The students were awarded with certificates, applause and hugs after shaking hands – like big kids – with Tribal leaders Brighton Councilman Andrew J. Bowers Jr., Brighton Board Rep. Larry Howard and Chairman Billie.
