Ladue Graduates 301 Students Indoors on Sunday

Beautiful Ceremony Marks Final Day for Class of 2011.

Neither rain or surprisingly cold May weather could dampen the enthusiasm of the 301 graduates at Ladue Horton Watkins High School Fifty-Ninth Commencement Ceremony Sunday night. The conditions forced the ceremonies inside the gym, but everyone was in fine spirits, non-the-less.

John Charles Edward Gaskin III gave a stirring welcome, to be remembered by the graduates for years to come. The talented football player, student leader, son of a Ladue High teacher urged his fellow students to stand up, be recognized, let their voices be heard and make a difference in the World. He encouraged each graduate to consider professional careers like doctor, lawyer, politician and teacher to change the world and be the leaders of tomorrow, today. It was an inspiring address.

Senior Class of 2011.

Ladue's graduation was a very nice affair. Going indoors didn't spoil a thing. Please take some time to review the video and photos from this annual event.
