The West Liberty-Salem Class of 2025 was honored in the 8th grade Recognition Ceremony this morning. Students and their families were welcomed by Principal Mr. Greg Johnson and guest speaker Valedictorian Kaylee LeVan. Ava Johnson, Class President, also offered opening remarks. Mr. Johnson acknowledged that in a very unprecedented year with many unknowns, he was pleased by how well this class handled the many obstacles that inevitably came their way. While WL-S remained in person for almost the entire year, many students endured quarantines, maybe even several quarantines, some students chose online learning, or began learning online and then integrated back to in-person school. But, regardless of the challenges, changes and uncertainties, the class of 2025 did a great job making the best of 2020/21!
