After being in and out of the building for the better part of the last 16 months, the Class of 2021 at Kewaunee High School is prepared to leave one final time.
Like all schools in the state, the class’ junior year was cut short due to the pandemic. As coronavirus concerns ebbed and flowed through the community during the school year, so did the time for the 81 students in the building. Kewaunee Principal Mike Bennett says there was a sense of normalcy as the year went on as more students were able to come to school at the same time and athletic events were able to be hosted. It is the flexibility and the compassion for the situation that Bennett will remember about this year’s senior class.
Valedictorians Chelsea Dax, Cierra Brann, Elizabeth Lamack, and Jack Severin will lead their graduation class through their commencement exercises on Friday at 6 p.m. inside the school competition gym.
