Quote: Michelle Brilhart, senior class advisor, said, “The Class of 2020 entered FSK with a lot of energy and school spirit which they continued to display throughout their four years. They worked hard and earned many accolades along the way as individuals, groups, and a whole. In a time of challenges and difficulties they have continued to soar and rise above although the fun part of their high school career was lost with the sudden ending. They have persevered and they are leaving FSK stronger as they begin to spread their wings. It has been a pleasure to lead this class over the last four years, to watch them grow and learn. As we send them off into the world to soar, I know that while they will continue to face adversities, they are prepared to make a difference in the world around them.”

Quote: Kati Hockstad and Kim Gossert, senior class advisors, said, “Manchester Valley’s Class of 2020 is most notably defined by their resilience, tenacity, and talent during their time at Manchester Valley. This special group of students has taken every opportunity to embody the slogan that began their freshman year: ‘Together we are one.' Collectively, they have exhibited an unwavering determination, persistence, and ability to adapt to unforeseen circumstances and situations, from being the first fully Maverick freshmen right up through graduating through a pandemic. During their final weeks as high school students, our seniors have once again demonstrated great character and pride as they have adapted and adjusted to challenges with grace and dignity. Their high school careers will end as they started – with great excitement and anticipation for the new chapter that is about to begin in their lives. They are certain to leave lasting impressions wherever they go, just as they left their legacy at Manchester Valley.”

Quote: Sarah Larson, senior class advisor, said,” The 2020 South Carroll High School graduation will be non-traditional but still special and particularly memorable. Due to social distancing regulations, students will receive their diplomas with a few guests in attendance, not getting the chance to celebrate their accomplishments with their classmates. Instead of dwelling on the negative impact of covid-19, our exceptional students will reflect on the creative way our community rallied together to honor them. The students are grateful for surprise visits from our faculty, staff and administrators, personalized virtual celebrations , and a festive parade through town. Our seniors are part of a historic event that will be remembered as a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I am proud of their optimism and resilience.”
