A bittersweet turning point

Senior Madalyn Whitford passes out roses to her family members during Cusick High School graduation at the Kalispel Pow Wow grounds Friday, June 4. The ceremony was held in the cool of the evening and so fireworks could be set off in the graduates’ honor at the end. Valedictorian was Anwyn Anderberg and Salutatorian was Kari Hays.
