November 03, 2016 | Steve Evenson

At the end of this past school year, the Fairbanks Church created a special senior recognition Sabbath and dedication to the seniors graduating from college, high school and academy.

Mallory Wetherington gave a challenge and encouragement to the graduates. She was eloquent, direct and to the point of her message encouraging the students to follow after God and His ways and to make a difference in this world while preparing for the next. She graduated from University of Alaska Fairbanks, with a major in Russian studies.

There was a picnic and a nature walk at Chena Lakes Recreation Area after church.

Two others also graduated from the University of Alaska Fairbanks: Ariana Casey, who received a Bachelor of Science in biological sciences with a minor in Japanese, and Micah Bador, who received a Bachelor of Science in biological sciences.

Graduating from high school in Fairbanks were Symca Gillette, Hannah Bador, Aaron Dasher, Andrew Hammett, Saskia Harrison and Felicia Thruston.

Graduating from Adventist academies were Kristina Bergeron, Auburn (Wash.) Adventist Academy; Braden Ladd, Upper Columbia Academy in Spangle, Wash.; and Deanna Marsh, Great Lakes Academy in Cedar Lake, Mich.
