Dear Community, Congratulations 2020 Graduates! I would like to recognize the GlenOak Class of 2020 graduates on their accomplishments. You have graduated during one of the most difficult times in our history. Your resolve and perseverance have been inspirational to the entire Plain Local community; this entire paper is dedicated to all of you and your accomplishments. I would like to thank you personally for the example you have set for future classes at GlenOak High School. It is my hope that each class will reflect on your dedication and grit as they experience their high school career. You have completed a journey that no one planned for and demonstrated class and integrity along the way. You are Champions! I would also like to thank the entire Plain Local community for your support and selfless actions during this time. You have supported our students and given back to our families to support them during an uncertain time. I have never been prouder to live and work in this school district and look forward to the future together. We will weather this storm and become stronger and more united as we move forward to the 2020-2021 school year. As one community, we will support our neighbors and continue to provide an exceptional education for all of our 6,000 students. Have a great summer and Go Eagles!

Brent May, Superintendent


CONGRATULATIONS, CLASS OF 2020!

We are so very excited for you to start the next chapter in your lives. This year will certainly go down in your life history as one of the most unusual, unexpected, and unprecedented years ever. While it might be tempting to think of the things you lost from the last few months of your senior experience, we encourage you to think of the things you gained. Your ability to be academically, emotionally, and socially nimble has been tested by fire. You have a set of skills, whether you wanted them or not, that no other class graduating from high school has had. You have been forced to think, act, and learn outside of the proverbial box. You have lived with a great degree of uncertainty about what even the following week had in store; you have had to be creative with your time and resources, and many of you have had to take on adult responsibilities before you had planned. While all of this can be viewed as a sacrifice, it can also be viewed as an opportunity to become stronger, more resilient, and creative individuals who are better prepared to tackle any challenges life presents. You are pioneers, Class of 2020, paving the way and setting the example for those who will follow in your steps. We are proud of you and your accomplishments. You are not, nor will you be, defined by a pandemic. Capitalize on this experience and use it to forge renewed strength, passion, and focus. The Class of 2020 will enter the world with unprecedented skills, and although you have great challenges, you have great ability. We believe in you and have hope that your life-work will make our communities better places to be. Always remember: the hard-fought battle brings a sweeter victory! Congratulations, Class of 2020. Sincerely, Mike Babics and Gayle Kimbrough

GLENOAK HIGH SCHOOL TOP 25 The GlenOak High School Top 25 banquet is an opportunity for our students to recognize the teacher or staff member that had the most influence on their education. Unfortunately the event was not able to be held in person this year but the students still were able to choose the educator who had the most impact on their Plain Local Education. Congratulations to these students and their honored educators.
