While some events at Bear River High School traditionally stay the same year after year, generation after generation, their annual senior class awards ceremony is no longer one of them.

This year administrators at Bear River High decided to switch things up a bit compared to how they were done in years past. This year the Class of 2021 at Bear River High met on Monday, May 24, for an assembly during school hours to honor this year’s top graduating seniors. It was just one of the many changes to the awards ceremony.

One thing that did remain the same for 2021, was the presentation of the school’s top five awards of the year and the announcement of class Valedictorian and Salutatorian.

Valedictorian for the Class of 2021 is Noelle Meeds, daughter of Cortney and Holly Meeds.

This year's 2021 Salutatorian at Bear River High is Tanner Corbridge, son of Richard and Adella Corbridge.
