A pinnacle moment in education (slideshow)


For youth nowadays, YOLO is a popular acronym. It’s also the class motto of the North Branch Area High School Class of 2013.

Simple and straightforward, “you only live once” is an apt way to think about one’s life.

It was easy to see many of those from the Class of 2013 had that euphemism on their minds during graduation June 5. They were lost in the moment, trying to take in the culmination of 13 years of learning.

Family and friends watched from the audience, smiles gracing their faces as the young men and women strode across the stage in the west gymnasium to receive their diplomas. Photos by Derrick Knutson
