The Kamiah Head Start early childhood education program held an outdoor graduation last Wednesday, May 27. In a reverse parade, students donned cap and gown, stood along the roadside with their family and a homemade sign with their name. Supporters, including the Kamiah fire truck and ambulance crews drove the route, honking, throwing candy and cheering for the excited grads. Veda Pfefferkorn of Head Start said that 12 Head Start (4-5 year olds) and four early Head Start (0-3 year olds) students graduated this year. Jenny Oatman, director of Head Start for the Nez Perce Tribe came over from Lapwai to attend the event, which she thought was great.
