KALISPELL - Friday night more than 300 Flathead High School seniors will walked across the stage and received diplomas for their academic achievements saying "goodbye" to high school forever.

Senior English Teacher Bruce Riley will also say "farewell" to Flathead High School this year as he begins a new journey of retirement.

"In my career I've taught about 7,000 students a significant amount and I go through withdraws like a lot of teachers do,"  Riley said.

Bruce has dedicated 28 years of his life to educating juniors and seniors at Flathead High School. Every school year he is introduced to a new set of students.
He said what he will miss most about the job is his personal bond with both students and faculty.

"A lot of the teachers go through withdraws because we will not see some of these students ever again in our lifetime they become like family to us very special,"  Riley said.

Flathead High School Principal Peter Fusaru is in his 16th year as the school's leader.
He said he will miss Riley's passion and dedication to his students.

"He cares deeply about kids and education and he always goes above and beyond especially in the classroom to make a positive experiences and connections for them,"  Fusaru said.

Six other teachers at Flathead High School will be retiring at the end of the academic school year.
