Impressive students graduating to take on uncertain world

Published 9:13 pm Tuesday, May 29, 2012

Last week Landrum High School graduated 114 students and sent them off into their futures. If these students are fearful for what lies ahead, many of them don’t show it.
These young graduates and their peers at Polk County High School are taking on the world with brave, bold plans.
In our Thursday, May 31 edition we’ll introduce you to the Landrum students who recently graduated and the Polk County High School students set to accept their diplomas Friday, June 8.
We’ll also give you a glimpse into what these students see themselves accomplishing as they leave our area in pursuit of higher education and community service.
We think you will be just as impressed as we were by their unique plans for life after high school. It seems very few of these students are allowing the doom and gloom viewpoint on today’s economy to hold them back.
Yes, unfortunately many of them will face setbacks and roadblocks that reality stacks in front of all of us, but we commend their enthusiasm for the paths they are about to follow.
Through their own ingenuity and creative spirits we think these students can accomplish great things. The support they have received over the years, and hopefully will continue to receive, from our great community will also make all the difference.
Congratulations, graduates!
