The 212 seniors in Skyline High School's graduating class will "walk" at its commencement ceremony held at the high school at 9 a.m. Saturday.

Brenda Wells, director of school counseling at Skyline, said this year's batch of graduation candidates marks the second smallest class since it opened in 2007.

"I think they're a very close class," she said. "They've made lasting friendships."

Out of the graduating seniors, 51 students are headed to a four-year college and 68 students are going to a two-year college, according to Wells.

"I think over the years, we've seen a few less going to four-year [colleges], usually because of economics," she said. "A lot of people will go to two-year [colleges]."

She said 17 students are going to a trade or vocational school, 63 students are going to work, nine students have enlisted in the military and four students are undecided.

Students in Skyline's class of 2014 have earned scholarships, including $4,500 from the Blue Ridge Tech School, $9,900 in athletic scholarships, $73,850 from local awards, $617,780 from colleges and universities and $1.8 million from military education packages.

Skyline Principal Andrew Keller, Student Council President Lindsey Morrison and Senior Class President Megan Reinhardt will speak during the commencement ceremony.
