A Message from the Superintendent

Every year I attempt to provide a hint of optimism and some meaningful guidance to our students as they embark on their path to adulthood. Let’s say “words of wisdom” that can only be gained with life’s experiences. I have, however, come to accept that our students, who are still in the early stages of their lives, are so impressive with their maturity and understanding of life beyond their years. Below are “words of wisdom” from our students:

Teamwork & Collaboration
Amaya Mayes, Nordonia Hills, Cosmetology

Be creative and be vulnerable with your peers who have a similar passion and goal. It’s really awesome to share journeys together.

Justin Wasielewski, Garfield Heights, Culinary Arts

Feel confident that you will be successful; do your best and lead by example.

Cade Davies, Cuyahoga Heights, Sports Medicine Exercise Science

Treat others correctly, be knowledgeable, be a role model that others look up to and be an all-around great person.

Hannah Boulton, Brecksville-Broadview Heights, Architectural & Mechanical Design

When starting something new, it can be a bit frustrating. It takes time to adjust; eventually you will figure it out and it will be so much fun!

Kaitlyn Jones, Independence, Health Careers

Don’t ever let anyone deter you or stop you from reaching your goals. Be you! You are loved!

Congratulations to all of our students in the class of 2024. Good luck on this journey we call life!
