It is time for NPS to send you out into the real world. You are now one of us; an adult who is expected to contribute and make the world a better place. I came to Newaygo when you were in 9th grade, so in a sense I was a “freshman” just like you. It was your first year in the high school and it was my first year as the NPS superintendent. A lot has changed since then. I know I have learned a great deal and I am sure you have as well.
This community is pleased with all of your accomplishments and leadership exhibited throughout your high school years. The Class of 2015 has produced several champions in both athletics and band. The artists in this class have achieved like none before. Academically gifted, this class has many students who finished their high school career with over a 4.0 GPA. Perhaps most significant, is that this class has produced outstanding citizens who exhibit care and concern for others.
I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to see you all learn, grow, and make your path. Congratulations on achieving this milestone. This community is proud of you. Go out and make this world a better place. And… never forget your roots. You’ll always be a Newaygo Lion! Carry that Lion Pride everywhere. Best wishes to you as your pursue your dreams.
