Marshall and Albion high school students end first year together
About 180 Marshall High School seniors will get their diplomas tomorrow.
Two dozen students from Albion will be among those in caps and gowns.
Last year, Albion school district officials decided to close their high school for budget reasons.
Most of the Albion students ended up at Marshall. There was concern the two student bodies would clash.
Dan Luciani is the principal of Marshall High School. He credits the students with making the transition work.
“The resiliency of kids,” says Luciani. “They really outdid themselves in adapting to the situation.”
Marshall school leaders will hold a special orientation for incoming freshmen from both communities later this summer.
