Ninety-five graduating seniors received their diplomas from Ville Platte High School at the school’s 52nd commencement exercises. Raymond Aucoin, parish school superintendent, delivered the principle address. Superintendent LeRoy Soileau took part in the program, and the actual diplomas were awarded by Principal Yves Soileau. Class valedictorian was Judith Fuselier, and Darryl McManus was the salutatorian. Large numbers of parents, relatives, and friends were present for the colorful exercises.
