If there was ever a senior class that learned the importance of serving their community, it was this year’s Edwardsville High School graduating class.

EHS students performed more than 19,000 hours of community service this year and were led by the senior class. Many of the EHS seniors also earned college scholarships for the fall.

“The senior class has risen far above what I imagined they would accomplish in the area of community service,” said EHS Principal Dennis Cramsey. “At EHS, our students understand the importance of being a student first. Dan Marinko and Kallen Loveless, both athletes of the year for the seniors are typical of many of the strong students who are performing well in the classroom and also contributing to their respective teams’ success on the field or court.”

Cramsey said the same hard work and dedication transfers from participation in athletics, performing arts, and community service activities.

“Excellence has become engrained in the culture,” Cramsey added.

Brian Veitich was this year’s valedictorian for EHS and Wes Schoenthal and Zachary Morrisey were salutatorians.
