The committee has asked local businesses to display posters of each graduate in their stores. They said it’s a fun way to celebrate student achievements, while also driving business in this time of recovery.

This year, KSS has approximately 120 graduates and each participating business would be given six posters to display at no cost to the merchant.

Anyone wishing to particpate are asked to contact Mike at 250-752-0960.
