A historical school year will soon come to a close and the Class of 2020 will be moving on in their lives – some to the workplace, some to trade schools, and many others to colleges and universities.
Elizabethton’s Class of 2020 recently was recognized as the Top 10 percent was named and included a total of 33 students.
Beginning in today’s Elizabethton Star, those Top 10 Percent of students from Elizabethton will be recognized for their hard work. The Star is reaching out to Happy Valley, Hampton, Unaka, and Cloudland and will also publish those students as well.
