16 Jun Moapa Valley High School holds 100th commencement ceremony
It was no ordinary graduation ceremony for the Moapa Valley High School Class of 2017. The June 9 event marked the school’s 100th commencement ceremony. As reported by the Moapa Valley Progress, “MVHS Principal Hal Mortensen spoke of the 100-year anniversary saying that, in the very first MVHS Class of 1917 there were only two graduates. In the time since then, MVHS has graduated over 6,000 students.” The ceremony brought together five past MVHS principals.
