Message from Superintendent of Schools Sandra "Sam" Himmel

Superintendent Sandra "Sam" Himmel

Dear 2020 Graduates... 

Congratulations for achieving one of life’s most important milestones, your high school graduation. This tremendous accomplishment sets the stage for your future life and career choices. 

As you prepare to further your education and/or pursue your chosen career, please remember the contributions to your success that were made by your family, school staff members and the local community. 

It is important to express gratitude to each of those individuals who challenged, inspired, empowered and guided you along the way.  I especially encourage you to keep your family and friends close in your hearts and minds as you move into the next stage of your life. 

The high moral standards and values they helped to instill in your life will provide you with personal direction and a foundation of support in the years ahead.

The message I have for seniors is to not allow the events beyond our control that have impacted the last few months of high school diminish the pride I have for you and your accomplishments.  I want to wish each of you much success in the future. Congratulations, again, to each of you on all of your accomplishments. I wish you the best in achieving your future education and career goals. Whatever you choose to pursue, I invite you to return to your roots and become a productive member of this wonderful community, we call home. If education is your career choice, make sure you make an appointment with me when you finish your degree!

May you accomplish much and have wonderful memories along the way!

Sandra “Sam” Himmel
