MT. VERNON —
This space on Tuesday was used to thank the teachers and support staff who are retiring from area schools this spring following lengthy careers in education.
Today, we wish to congratulate those who will be graduating this month from area high schools. And not only the graduates, but their families as well. It takes a lot of hard work to get through high school and it sometimes can seem a grind to meet academic requirements along the way.
Many of the graduates will continue their education at colleges and universities. Others will join the workforce. Whatever your plans and goals, we congratulate you on achieving this step of your lives and wish you well as you leave high school.
