Celebrating our Minot AFB High School Graduates: Purple Cords

Written by: Joy-Nicole Smith, School Liaison Program Manager, GS-12 Department of the Air Force School Liaison Program

Our high school military connected graduates know at the core what it is like to experience change. From multiple moves to leaving friendships to attending different schools, these students are resilient with a unique perspective many are unable to grasp.


We want to celebrate our military connected high school graduates by sharing a purple cord for graduation or a senior banquet. This is acknowledgement of the many sacrifices these students have made in support of service to our nation.
The Minot AFB School Liaison Office is assessing the number of students graduating this school year throughout the area. Please complete the following survey for our office to properly assess: https://forms.gle/VuNrR8HbAfVtDQjf6


In addition, the Northern Sentry celebrates our graduating high school students by recognizing these students in a special edition. By completing the above survey, I am able to ensure all students are recognized.


Next steps will be forthcoming and please share broadly so as to support our military connected graduating seniors.
