The first graduating class where every student was born in the new millennium. Although this may seem like just yesterday to their parents this group has been around for almost two decades. What a difference two decades can make while the world changed drastically for their parents...this generation does not know life without Google, Social Media, Smartphones. And most of them likely taught their parents and grandparents how to survive in the new technology driven world.
This young generation tends to be underrated and my goal is to share each of their stories and impressive "resumes of accomplishments" throughout the school year....proving that our future is bright and our upcoming generation is prepared like no other to take on the world.
What are we going to learn about these kids ?!?
These kids are SAVVY. These kids are CONFIDENT. These kids are COMPETITIVE. These kids are KIND. These kids are CARING. These kids are TOLERANT. They work HARD! They play HARD! This generation will continue to INNOVATE and take the future to places we can't even imagine! Some of the class of 2019 will be able to vote in the fall. And when they wrap up their senior year some will serve in the military, most will move on to college and some will focus on trades. And they love and adore their families. Family is very important to these kids. That is so heartwarming to see!
You are going to be amazed at the workload these kids take on...some weeks they may spend the equivalent of working an 80 week between school, activities and other commitments. This generation is driven by strong minded, supportive parents who have allowed them to dream with the the sky as the limit. This generation is set up for success like no other. There are no boundaries. ANYONE can do ANYTHING they put their heart and passion and time into. Dedication to their athletics, extracurricular activities, honors and AP classes, part time jobs, volunteer hours is unmatched by generations before as a whole.
As we celebrate them, they will be leaving a legacy behind as well.
