Graduates from the S. William Abel Community School moved their tassels from the left to the right of their mortarboards and became the final class of 2020 in Colusa County.

The ceremony was held for five students on June 10 at the Education Village in Williams.

“These have been interesting times and to have you be here, and completing what you’ve completed is a testimony of your character,” said retired Colusa County Superior Court Judge William S. Abel, the school’s namesake.

The community school serves students from seventh through 12th grade.

Gianni Daniels, of Colusa, said he plans on attending college.

Joseph Weing, of Maxwell, said he wanted to pursue a career with CalFire.

Edduar Garcia Monano, also of Maxwell, said he intends to continue to college.

Kylar A. Wynant had successfully completed the requirements for high school graduation, although he was unable to attend the ceremony.

Siler Green-Miller received his eight grade promotion.

“You will be entering a world full of opportunities and challenges,” said Michael West, superintendent of schools. “You’ve been tested on how dynamic and how flexible your interrupted education, your goals, and your aspirations have become.”

West recognized the fact that the school year was challenging, but urged the graduates to apply what they learned to change the world for the better.

Daniels said that he finished his graduation requirements in January, but said it was nice to finally receive the graduation recognition that had been delayed due to COVID-19.

“I’ve been pretty much just waiting for this.”
