It was a night of pomp and circumstance on Saturday evening, May 22. Two hundred fifty-nine seniors received their diplomas.
It was a year filled with uncertainty, the highest of accolades, and that familiar Bulldog spirit. The 2021 class of Greenwood will be remembered as the class that endured so much to get to graduation, a pandemic, shifting to online learning, unknown opponents week to week in sporting events, and unusually cold temperatures with the most snow seen in quite some time.
They never gave up, they banded together and were able to make it to that all-important night, where “pomp and circumstance” is legitimately the soundtrack. One hundred eleven of the 259 Seniors had gone to Greenwood K-12 with 67% of the seniors receiving scholarships.
As the rain continued to fall on Friday the decision was made to delay the Graduation to Saturday, seemingly apropos for what this school year has brought. Class of 1996 Graduate Dr. Lance Bridges gave a great commencement speech to the soon-to-be graduates.
Congratulations to the seniors for their accomplishments on the field and most importantly in the classroom.
