To the graduates: ‘All the best in the next chapter’

Dear Senior Class of 2020,

Congratulations! You have reached a significant milestone in your lives.

None of us envisioned  the last two months of your senior year would end like they did. There are many special events and traditions you missed as a result of this unprecedented health crisis. It saddens me to know you were not able to experience and enjoy them.

Please know the health crisis DID NOT minimize all you have accomplished over the past 12 years. It brings me great joy to realize your many accomplishments and the lasting impact you will have on your schools. When I think about the Class of 2020, I’m reminded of a quote from Howard Schultz: “In times of adversity and change, we really discover who we are and what we’re made of.”

I wish you all the best in the next chapter of your lives.

The word unprecedented will forever be linked to 2020.  May the Franklin County Schools’ Class of 2020 accomplish unprecedented achievements throughout the rest of your lives.

Greg Hamilton

FCS Superintendent
