On Thursday, June 4, Woodlands Christian graduated 65 students in an outdoor commencement ceremony at Warrior Stadium, with physical distance restrictions in place. The Class of 2020 was awarded a record-breaking $7,900,000 in merit-based scholarship dollars. This amounts to about $121,492 per student. Of the combined 509 colleges applied to, they received 331 acceptances.
Kristen Harris accumulated the highest grade point average among her senior classmates, naming her the Valedictorian for the Class of 2020. Juhui Cheon earned the second highest, serving as this year’s Salutatorian.
In her opening remarks, Mrs. Ambler touched on the student’s historic final high school semester saying, “We will remember the Class of 2020 as a fine group of young leaders. They have risen above their frustrations this spring to prove their maturity and resilience in overcoming disappointment and unexpected challenges.”
After months of distance learning and uncertainty, the Woodlands Christian community was excited and relieved to celebrate the Class of 2020 in-person. In her speech to the graduating class, Valedictorian Kristen Harris said, “You’ve all made it! And that is something to celebrate. This class would not have been the same without any one senior because we are one body, and every part has a purpose.”
Congratulations, Warriors! We are so proud of you!
