    Well, people of Marion County, school is officially over. What a relief! Now I wonder if some of the parents are relieved or if they’re freaking out because their child is going to be home all summer. I know I wrote a column about finals and the students moving up a grade and wishing them luck. Now I can officially say I am a Marion County High School graduate and you students are now a grade higher!
