Senior Receives Diploma Before Departing for Army


Highlands High School graduating senior Nathaniel Riddell received his diploma from Principal Charlie Mort in a personal "ceremony" on Thursday, June 18 in the High School courtyard. Several staff members and Nathaniel's family were also in attendance.


The son of Dan Matisko and Tammy Riddell, Nathaniel will depart for the US Army on June 30, just a day before the Class of 2020's official graduation ceremony on July 1. He will begin his basic training at Fort Leonard Wood in the Ozarks region of Missouri.


Congratulations, best wishes and thank you for choosing to serve our country, Nathaniel!
