Senior graduation at Chief Leschi Schools, June 8.


Wes Studi (Cherokee) was the guest speaker, who became the first Native American actor to receive an Oscar this year.

Here, Studi gave the CLS class of 2019 a motivational speech about how they are the future. “Never stop learning,” Studi said. “The day you stop learning is the day you stop living.”
