Historic graduation

Maia Derrick-Tremblay is graduating from Salmon Arm Senior Secondary tomorrow

Maia Derrick-Tremblay is graduating from Salmon Arm Senior Secondary tomorrow, June 25 – 90 years after her great-grandfather, Daniel Wilcox More, who graduated from Salmon Arm Secondary in 1925.

After graduation, More went to Victoria to take a year of teacher training. He then returned to the area and became a teacher at Carlin School. The family was unable to find a graduation photo, so this image shows More in his early 20s. The 2015 Salmon Arm Secondary graduation will take place at 7 p.m. at the Shaw Centre, with a graduating class of 265 students.
