We know your senior year has certainly been a memorable one, and we hope you each have found ways to still make it a special one. Those of us in the School Counseling Office and Career Center are all proud of the way you persevered through the challenges of the past 18 months - including finishing your high school careers, applying to colleges and scholarships, pursuing military careers, managing activities and jobs - all while trying to keep yourself and those around you healthy. You are ready to take on whatever comes next.

Congratulations as you celebrate all of your achievements. You will always be Bobcat Strong!
