— One hundred and sixty-six students got their high school diplomas on May 23 from BaSix Knowledge Academy in Decatur.

The nontraditional school serves teens to adults who didn’t get diplomas in high schools and returned to school to improve their chance of getting better jobs.

Since its launch 16 years ago, the school has graduated more than 1,000 students who have gone on to attend major colleges and universities and joined military branches and the work force across the United States.

The 2013 graduation, held at Ray of Hope Christian Church, was the school’s eighth ceremony. Jeremy Henry, a rising senior at Morehouse College and a 2009 BaSix graduate, delivered the commencement address.
