RITZVILLE – The Lind-Ritzville School Districts online program has graduated its first student.
Thomas Bache-Wiig graduated from Lind-Ritzville Academy earlier this month.
Bache-Wiig graduated from the academy, with the full support of his family, including his father who “came all the way from Maine,” Superintendent Don Vanderholm said.
Bache-Wiig was comfortable with the online format from the beginning, the superintendent said, noting that the student “buckled down” and never missed a weekly meeting or goal-setting session with his teacher and mentor Paul McAnally.
