SPARTA — The Class of 2013 said goodbye to Highland High School on Sunday.
The 120-member class leaves as one of the more decorated and recognized classes at the school.
“Many of us see the accomplishments this class has made on the fields and courts, but those of us close to this class see them as exemplarary. They’ve represented Highland High School very well,” said Highland Superintendent William Dodds. “I look forward to watching them enter the world. I hope they continue to impact the world as they have impacted Highland.”
Following a performance by the Highland Symphonic Choir, the top five career center award winners were announced. Then, the top 10 college prep award winners were recognized, as well as those who have taken the nearly 1,000 hours of college credit this class has achieved while still in high school. The family and friends of the class were also treated to a solo performance of Green Day’s “Good Riddance” by class member C.J. Cossin.
