Wood river Graduation 2022

Wood River High School's class of 2022 prepares to enter their graduation ceremony.

The celebration for 203 Wood River High School seniors in the Class of 2022 begins with the Parade of Seniors driving parade through Hailey and Bellevue beginning at 6 p.m. at the high school on Thursday, May 26. Cap and gowns are not required since it is not the actual graduation ceremony. The parade will have a full police escort.

Seniors should report to the WRHS tennis courts at 1 p.m. for the mandatory Graduation Ceremony Practice at Phil Homer Stadium before the Parade of Seniors.

The Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2022 is planned for Friday, May 27, at 4 p.m. sharp at Phil Homer Stadium in Hailey. Students will arrive at the tennis courts by 3 p.m. The stadium will be cleared immediately following the ceremony to set up for Senior Bash. Doors close at 9:45 p.m. for entry to the party.

There have been two speakers chosen by the senior class: WRHS English Teacher Stephanie Spindler and student Juan Reyes.

Congratulations to the Class of 2022!

Note: In 2019, the Blaine County School Board adopted a change in how WRHS seniors are celebrated within high academic achievements in the graduating class. Rather than having a Valedictorian and Salutatorian, WRHS has moved to the Laude Honors System, which will be denoted with asterisks (*). Also, some students completed both the Idaho Seal of Biliteracy (B) and Dual Immersion (DI) certificates. Look for these in the print edition.

  • Cum Laude with Honors, 3.5-3.79 GPA (*).
  • Magna Cum Lauda with Great Honors, 3.8-3.99 GPA (**).
  • Summa Cum Laude with Highest Honors, 4.0+ GPA (***).
