Put-in-Bay School Class of 2020 Commencement was held at Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial at 6:30pm on Friday evening. COVID-19 circumstances changed the academic year and necessitated a delayed celebration. Graduates Joseph Byrnes, Cecilia Glauser, Carin Kirsch, Alexandra Knauer, Hannah Lentz, and Morgan Stacy received a multitude of scholarships. Keynote speaker Ms. Sandra Brausch was not able to attend; however, Board of Education member John Domer read her address to the audience.
School Superintendent/Principal Steve Poe recognized the Eighth-Grade Class promotion to high school. The Freshman Class includes April Baca-Regalado, Joseph Blumensaadt, Hope Cooks, Elora Hubner, Emil Michael, Lyla Steidl, and Eleanor Kostura. Mr. Poe also announced the Seniors’ future plans.
The valedictory address was given by Alexandra Knauer; the class salutatory address was given by Joseph Byrnes. In closing, Seniors moved their tassels and the Junior Class led the singing of the Alma Mater.
