Message from the Leeds Tribune
Welcome to the 2019 Greenwave Graduates special keepsake edition presented by the Leeds Tribune!
The Leeds Tribune is honored to recognize the 2019 graduates of Leeds High School in this first-time special edition that we plan to make a tradition. This section includes a list of the graduates, the valedictorian and salutatorian and many awards and scholarships achieved by the Class of 2019. This edition would not have been possible without our wonderful advertisers who are sending heartfelt messages to Leeds High School’s graduates for a strong future. As the owner of the Leeds Tribune since September 2018,
I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the people who make Leeds such a caring and impactful community, which includes many of this year’s graduates. The Leeds Tribune team pledges to continue serving as your only news source and connector of people and businesses in Leeds and we wish the Class of 2019 the best! Congratulations, Leeds Graduates from the Leeds Tribune! Cheers, Cindy Fisher, Publisher
