JAMESTOWN — Greeneview Principal Brian Masser held nothing back when asked to speak about the school’s graduating seniors.
“The Jamestown community is a better place because of the class of 2017,” Masser said. “This group has strong student leadership and a heart for service.”
In various ways, the 110 members of the senior class gave back to their close-knit community.
A recent example is the Color Blaze 5K organized by one senior in conjunction with the National Honor Society. The event raised more than $1,000 for Greeneview’s Blessings in a Bag program, which helps provide food for economically disadvantaged families in the community. Another senior has volunteered religiously at the monthly community meal throughout her four years of high school.
“These examples typify the servant-heart of the class of 2017 that we’ve been blessed to watch unfold over the past four years,” Masser said.
The seniors also earned a plethora of cash for themselves, via $1.886 million in scholarship offers.
In all, 82 seniors plan to go to college. Forty-seven will attend a four-year school, while 35 will attend a two-year institution. Ten are going into the work force and eight are joining the military.
Co-valedictorians are Sabrina Saunders, and Mitchell Link. The salutatorian is Cory Marcum.
