Goldendale Celebrates Hawaiian-style Graduation

Elizabeth Fischer (left) celebrated in Hawaiian style as the sole eighth-grade graduate of Goldendale Adventist School. Fischer, her teachers Clinton and Esther Cummings (also pictured), and other guests enjoyed Hawaiian fruit and flowers shipped directly from Hawaii by Fischer's grandparents.

This unique graduation theme was inspired by Fischer's family, who have spent time in Hawaii, where her mother was born and raised. The daughter of Calvin and Faye Fischer of Appleton, Wash., Fischer finished both eighth and ninth grade while taking and giving piano lessons.
