High School Repeats On-Air Graduation Success

Last year, across the country, high school graduations took many forms. In Nome, as regular readers of this newsletter may remember, the high school collaborated with KNOM for a special on-air graduation combined with a vehicle procession through the city.

This year’s graduates at Nome-Beltz High School asked principal Jay Thomas if their ceremony, too, could be on the radio rather than return to the usual pomp and circumstance.

Les Brown, KNOM’s longest-running volunteer – now in his fifth decade of service to the mission – joined forces with Tony Calumet, general manager, to make the graduation ceremony a live radio event students are unlikely to forget.
