Chaska High School held its 112th annual commencement ceremony Friday evening at Grace Church in Eden Prairie.

Principal Jim Bach, who was welcomed with a standing ovation from the students and families, gave the graduating seniors a message of positivity.

“We want you to be happy,” Bach said. “This world is yours.”

Seniors Ellen Bergum and Issac Steffensen addressed their peers and spoke a message of unity. “The next chapter begins today,” Bergum said. “We are all Hawks.”
