High school seniors at local high schools are not looking ahead to what is on the other side of graduation quite yet. They are instead focusing their efforts on special projects required for graduation. At Gibraltar, seniors are completing projects benefiting the community, like Ryan Kropuenske’s Steps for Change Benefit Walk to support the Door County Medical Center Ministry Fund this weekend in Baileys Harbor. In Algoma, students are putting the final touches on what Middle and High School Principal Nick Cochart calls “capstone projects” where they tackle issues like developing a positive culture around masculinity. Cochart says the conversations he has with students as they complete these projects are why he loves his job.
High school graduation ceremonies will take place over the coming weeks, beginning with Southern Door on May 26th.
