The Leeds High School Class of 2019 said goodbye to their alma mater in a ceremony Thursday night at Church of the Highlands.
Principal Rayford Williams said this was a special class, partly because they were his first to graduate under his first year as principal. But also because they set academic records and conquered obstacles.
“I am confident you are prepared,” Williams said.
The class earned $2.2 million in scholarships and had a record number of students receive higher than a 30 on the ACT.
Speakers included Valedictorian Emmy Beason and Salutatorian Julia Jones.
