FALCONER – Falconer High School held its 73rd commencement on Thursday evening.

In total, 88 students graduated in the class of 2021 during an outdoor ceremony at Bill Race Field on the high school’s grounds.

The class’s valedictorian Mikaela LeBaron spoke to the legacy her classmates will leave behind, including a new tradition.

“Our class wanted to start a new tradition at Falconer, drive your tractor to school day, I know I did not want to miss this event,” said LeBaron. “Participants had their big tractors, and then there was me on a little lawn mower holding up the entire parade, at least the weeds growing in the cracks of the road are trimmed short now.”

LeBaron also expressed her thanks to the teachers, staff and families for their support over the past year, with big hurdles like the global pandemic impacting the way they learned at the school, but definitely not the spirit of students.
