Graduation 2005: Alternative students defeat all odds

Dont call them recovering drug addicts, teenage parents or students who just needed a little more help than mainstream high school can offer. Just call them what they are high school graduates.
On Thursday afternoon Central Kitsap and Eastside alternative high schools saw about 85 graduates at the Presidents Hall on Fairgrounds Road. At the alternative school, the students are allowed to complete course work at their own pace. A recurring theme at the graduation was no matter what path the students took to get to the alternative school route, they are now on equal footing with the other high school grads.
