PICHER, OK -- After 90 years of public education, the small northeastern Oklahoma town of Picher had its last high school graduation ceremony this weekend.

A powerful tornado tore through the town last May. Seven people were killed, and many other residents relocated.

The government was also in the process of buying out homes near the Tar Creek Superfund site.

Because of the declining school enrollment, voters decided to dissolve the district.

Eleven seniors graduated this weekend. There were 51 students in the third through 12th grades.
