Principal's reflections on the class of 2020: Class of 2020, when you look back on your high school graduation, and you WILL, more, I would suspect, than any other class that has come before you, what will you most remember? Will it be the global pandemic? The e-learning? The social-distancing and mask-wearing? Maybe, but more than even that, I hope you'll remember the way you were prepared ... you had a plan, you had been getting ready, and when it mattered most, you rose to the challenge. I hope you'll remember the importance of community, both the community you helped create during your time at HEHS, and the difference you made in the lives of those you loved at a time when they needed you most. And I hope you'll never forget the courage with which you faced really difficult circumstances, choosing to see the promise and rising above the pain to create something really beautiful in its wake. Class of 2020, you've endured more than many of us in a lifetime, and have already proven yourselves worthy not just of a successful high school completion and the diploma you receive today, but of being the kind of resilient, gifted individuals who make their mark on the world. You don't need to walk across a stage today to start your journey on making the world a better place. You already have. Congratulations, Class of 2020.
