LEWISTON — Central Maine Christian Academy, 390 Main St., held its graduation ceremony at the Greene Baptist Church recently. Commencement exercises were held for Matthew Doughty of New Gloucester, son of Duane and Linda Doughty; Matthew Hill of Poland, son of Michael Hill and Dorothy Dyck; Morgan Penley of Greene, daughter of Troy and Becky Penley; Jarod Sprague of Mt. Vernon, son of Denise Sprague; and Gabrielle St. Hilaire of Mechanic Falls, daughter of Jacob and Lyana St. Hilaire.

The graduation began with Administrator Patricia St. Hilaire giving the invocation, and teacher Mike Nyberg presenting the opening prayer. He then gave the commencement address titled, “Following Good Examples,” in which he challenged the seniors to emulate Christian examples from the Bible.

The CMCA chorus then sang “In Christ Alone” and “Live like You’re Loved” to their fellow classmates. Other high school students honored the seniors with a video tribute. The diplomas were awarded by St. Hilaire, board members Thomas Clark and David St. Hilaire, and members of the school staff.

Following the graduation ceremony, relatives and friends joined the graduates and their parents in a receiving line and reception held in their honor.
