ACHS Class of 2016: Remarks of Mr. Reed to a very special class
The buzz around the county is that this graduating class at Adair County High School is the most exciting one ever. The Adair County School District is being honored today with the presence of Mr. Brad Hughes of the Kentucky School Board Association who asked to participate and observe the second Senior Walk pioneered by Adair County High School last year, a 'new tradition' which is instilling a last sense of family with both the new alumni and those students in every grade who aspire to emulate - and surpass - the landmark achievements of the Class of 2016. - CM
Text of remarks by Superintendent Alan W. Reed at the Senior/Parent Breakfast for the 2016 Graduating Class at Adair County High School, 8amCT, Tuesday, May 24, 2016:
When you first came into ACHS your freshman year, it seemed that graduation was a distant dream and I'd bet you can remember more than once hearing someone say, "I can't wait to get out of this place!."
But as we sit here this morning, we have so many memories to look back on.
You are going to miss this school when we move onto bigger and better futures. ACHS will always be a part of your life.
The past 12 or 13 years (if you went to pre-school) have boiled down to this week. You will be receiving your diplomas and all of the hard work, laughs, tears, and the long hours of practice, planning and studying have paid off.
"As Superinetendent, there are no other people I'd rather have spent my last four high school years with than the class of 2016.
Every class is special, but what I will always remember the class of 2016 for is that more positive change happened during your four years than any other class EVER before you! That is a big claim! And as Carl Sagan said, "Extraordinary claims require extraordinary data."
So I have my proof---just a partial list of what you have witnessed in your past four years:
- Zero dropouts for three consecutive years!
