IWHS Salutatorian’s Address

Hi everyone!

I’m glad to see all of you out here today. Despite everything, we made it! We’re all here today, and I’d like to thank each and every one of you for being here to celebrate with us.

For starters, I’d like to thank our families and friends. Each parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, uncle, best friend and more, you have stood next to us through our achievements and setbacks alike. Your endless support has helped us get to where we are today.

Additionally, thank you to the Iroquois West Staff for everything they’ve done, especially the teachers. It’s been a challenging year balancing in-person and e-learning classes. I got a first-hand look at that myself during an Art Club meeting - you’re trying to see the slide you’re presenting, but on top of that you have tabs open for chat and the students joining in.. it’s a lot! I commend you for finding balance and being patient while we navigated technology issues.
