N N N " Burnet Bulletin . k Wed esday, May 9, 2018 Wayne Craig From the Dawg House For most youth in Burner the countdown is on anticipat- ing the last day of school, but for the 2018 senior class it's a much greater count. On Friday, May 25 parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles will choke back prideful tears as Burnet High School com- mencement ceremonies begin to unfold. It's crazy how fast it all goes by; it seems like yesterday the 2018 semors were just entering high school. It's a bittersweet moment for many senior parents. Their babies are about to be recognized for the tremendous amount of effort it took them to get to the mining of the tassel. That's an achievement that all can be proud of. but with gradua- tion comes the spreading of their wings. You. the parent, have to hope that all you've taught them will help the flight. It's a double dose for my wife and I this month as our son Jes graduates from college this Friday followed by our youngest Jayci who will walk the stage in Burnet on the 25. There are almost 200 seniors who will be receiving their di- plomas this year; if you happen to see any of the 2018 class give them a pat on the back. - As frr their mothers, a little prayer would be nice. BHS had it's annual awards ceremony last night, look for photos and info on that in next week's edition. On Saturday Ian Carter will run his last race as a Bumet Bull- dog at the UIL State track meet. His event takes place at 12:45 p.m.; we wish him the best of luck. Most sports are starting to wind down with summer ap- proaching but you can read about the BMS golf teams in this week's edition as well as some little league action that will con- tinue through much of May. All star teams will soon fol- low and 7 on 7 football is gearing up for another summer run. The BHS junior and senior academic awards ceremony is scheduled for this coming Tues- day, May 15 starting at 6:00 p.m. and on Thursday, May 17 the Hill Country CommunityFoun- dation will host a scholarship night which will include every single senior getting a scholar- ship to help with funds for their new college journeys. That pro- gram will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the BHS Auditorium. If you are wanting to sign your child up for one or more of the many summer camps BHS will soon be hosting check the camp dates and times in this week's edition for that informa- tion. Last, but not least if you are looking for some rodeo action the 2018 Bumet County Rodeo is this Friday and Saturday start- ing at 7:00 p m. each night. That's all for this week. Thanks for reading the Burnet Bulletin. Photo by Wayne Craig/Clear Memories This Saturday, May 12, at 12:45 p.m. Burnet senior lan Carter wi II take to the track one last time in his Bulldog green. Carter, who placed first at both district and regionals, will test his legs for the fourth-straight year at the UIL State track meet in the 110 men's high hurdles. The UIL event is being hosted by the University of Texas and will take place at Mike A, Myers Stadium. Following graduation Carter will trade in his Bulldog apparel for some Texas State maroon and gold after signing a scholarship deal to run track for the Bobcats.
