Principal Dan Kelley said one of the distinguishing characteristics of the Class of 2019 was its insistence on keeping a positive attitude and staying optimistic. "When I think of this class, I think of two words: relationships and resil- iency," Kelley said. He said their success will not end at graduation, but continue through their adult lives.
