Doane Academy Celebrated the Class of 2018 at its 181st Commencement

Xinyue Shirley Zhang, from Chongqing, China, addresses her classmates as the valedictorian for Doane Academy’s class of 2018.

Doane Academy celebrated the class of 2018 at its 181st commencement on Saturday.

Senator Diane Allen addressed the 24 graduates as the commencement speaker, and valedictorian Xinyue Shirley Zhang of Chongquing, China, and Gokulraj Harikumar, of Florence, also spoke.

Ninety-six percent of the graduating class will move on to post-secondary education, with one of the 24 taking a gap year “for athletic purposes,” according to the school. No Doane students will enter the military following graduation, and all received some sort of scholarship money toward higher education. The school did not provide specific amounts.
