Members of the WCSD Board of Trustees will join Interim Superintendent Dr. Kristen McNeill in celebrating this milestone with graduates and their teachers, families, and friends.


“We know that the benefits of earning a high school diploma will last a lifetime, and we congratulate our newest graduates on this great achievement,” said WCSD Board President Katy Simon Holland. “All of us know how hard they worked and how they persevered to reach this goal. Support from their families and our school staff members played an important role in the process, so now that they have completed their work, we honor these graduates and everyone who helped them over the finish line.”


“I look forward to honoring our graduates at this event every year,” said Interim Superintendent Dr. Kristen McNeill. “These students took the extra time they needed to finish this important work and earn their diploma. They dedicated themselves to their academic work, and I join with our staff members, their families, and their friends in congratulating them.”
