K-M Class of 2019 remembered as leaders
Four years ago, Kasson-Mantorville High School Principal Trent Langemo, and a freshman class started at the school together.
Now four years later, that same class walked across the graduation stage, on Sunday.
During the graduation ceremony School Board Chairperson, Kent Harfmann, spoke to the graduating class in a fireside chat style speech, where he complimented the class on their exceptional leadership, and commitment to the community.
“Going forward you should remember that life is a “do it yourself project.” You should be fired up for that because this class has more leaders than I have ever seen before,” Harfmann said.
During Zowie Moses student address, she started her speech off with some humor.
“It's not everyday you get to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon watching a bunch of teenagers walk across a stage to receive a piece of paper.” “I think that being able to receive that piece of paper took a lot of hard work over the past few years though.”
During the ceremony, students who made honors and high honors at the time of graduation were honored, along with graduates who are entering the military.
Also being honored during the ceremony was the two foreign exchange students this year, Anar Chinbat and Finn Dornseifer.
“We are grateful for their time they spent here,” Langemo said.
