Fighting through the adversity of the last 16 months will be how Sevastopol Principal Adam Baier remembers the 45 members of this year’s senior class.
The class of 2021 saw the last few months of its junior year wiped out due to the onset of the pandemic. Their senior year has also had challenges as they bounced between different models of hybrid learning and other COVID-19 related issues.
Despite that, Baier says the seniors refused to let the pandemic steal another year. The class boasts an average 3.4 GPA and still had its senior trip and prom, albeit a little differently. Baier says it will be a class that is remembered.
Sevastopol will host its commencement exercises inside the Sevastopol Elementary School Gymnasium at 2 p.m. Jenna Engeldinger, Kylie Newton, Noah Tomaszewski, McKenzie Wiesner will be recognized as Sevastopol’s valedictorians with all four earning perfect 4.0 GPAs.
