Bear Lake High School Seniors were required to complete a Senior Project to graduated this year even though the State did not require this. The Seniors had their opportunity to tell friends, family and school staff about their projects on April 22. There was many people that attended the event and it was apparent the students were proud of what they had accomplished. We have great kids in our valley and it was good to see them get to show us their hard work.
