The transition from high school to the real world may be easier in some respects compared to what Gibraltar’s Class of 2021 has already experienced. The first part of their junior year was spent in portable classrooms out the school’s gym as Gibraltar started work on its $4.5 million referendum projects that included a refurbished library and media center. Just as they were getting used to the new space, they went home due to the pandemic for virtual learning before they returned on a limited basis in January. Gibraltar’s outgoing principal Gereon Methner hopes this weekend’s outdoor ceremony is the ending the senior class deserves.
This year’s seniors will be the first to be recognized by the Laude System of Honors. Students graduating Summa Cum Laude, which is the highest level in the system, include Lexie Henkel, Jackson Hitzeman, Eliza Maltby, Molly McCormack, and Marcus Reinhardt. The graduation ceremony will take place at the football field on June 6th beginning at 2 p.m.
