Principal's reflections on the Class of 2020:

The Class of 2020 grads have done and will continue doing great things. They set an extraordinarily high standard for academic success, with 2020 grads heading off to schools like MIT, Harvard, and UCLA. They shined in the fine and performing arts and the athletic arena, achieving recognition at the conference, area and state levels. They redefined what it means to be "ready" for life, engaging in authentic workplace learning and preparing to serve our country in the U.S. Armed Forces. In every way, the EGHS Class of 2020 has been a pleasure to know. I am thrilled to celebrate them!

-- Principal Paul Kelly
