I want to express how thankful I am to live and work in this community. Graduation is our first sign that the end of the school year is near; this year it was definitely a team effort, and we could not have done it without you! I especially wanted to thank:

Jared Young for the awesome job streaming on YouTube.

Pat Specht and Brandon Voorhees for gatekeeping, pyrotechnics, and general handyman efforts.

Raelynn Howell, Shannon Dellinger, Tabitha McNamee for outstanding graduation decorations.

Martha House and Connie Leetch for sewing masks, printing programs, proofing slideshows, and programs.

Bruce Bailey for getting the PA system from the football field up to the high school.

Marian Russell for putting together senior scholarship packets to help them send thank you notes and such.

Jennifer Branz for delivering a great commencement address.

Katie Lund for helping do the “little things” in the days leading up to graduation.

Tony Underdahl for gathering all the graduation supplies and having the grounds look great.

Bryn Cotter for printing senior T-shirts.

Tina Brackebusch for her hard work organizing the graduation ceremony.

Kip and Danee McGillivray for supplying the trailer for our graduation stage.

Sheriff Gunderson for leading the parade of graduates through our community.

Wallace School District Community for showing your amazing Wallace Miner support during the parade of graduates.

Senior Parents for your patience and understanding during the planning stages of graduation. You worked with us and helped to provide the WHS class of 2020 a graduation they will never forget.

Class of 2020 for always having a positive attitude during this time of uncertainty. Nothing seemed to upset you about grading or graduation planning; you took everything in stride. I hope you continue to build on your strengths which you have developed at Wallace Jr/Sr High School and remember the sense of community we foster here. We encourage you to go far and dream big and remember there is always a place for you in Wallace.

A year we will never forget.

Chris Lund, Wallace Jr./Sr, High School Principal
