Distinguished Speakers Teach Us About Humility, Gratitude, and Fortitude
The past month, Orion High School celebrated two commencement ceremonies, honoring the men and women, of all ages, who earned their high school diploma over the past year.In all, nearly 500 learners ranging from Pretoria, South Africa, to Honolulu, HI, earned their high school diploma. Each learner who comes to Orion is different in his or her own way, and approaches learning differently - even in the digital classroom.
