Seniors at Kewaunee High School have shown this school year the importance of patience. After not being in the classroom since March and out of school since June, the class of 2020 will finally formally accept their diplomas in an outdoor graduation ceremony on Saturday afternoon. An in-person graduation was important to the senior class, so the district worked with the Kewaunee County Public Health Department to put on the socially-distanced event almost a month after others in the peninsula received their diploma in virtual or drive-up ceremonies. With it being his first graduating class during his term as principal, Kewaunee’s Mike Bennett is happy the seniors are finally getting their day.
Kewaunee’s graduating class is led by its five valedictorians: Kelli Barta, James Cullen, Alaina Ledvina, Emma Nuechterlein, and Benjamin Worth.
