GFW Class of 2020

GFW celebrated their Class of 2020 on Friday, June 5 with a ‘one-by-one’ commencement. Valedictorian Emily Burns and Co-Salutatorians Shelby Ramirez and Devon Schwarzrock gave their speaches to start the event. Then, Pomp and Circumstance was played over the speaker, and each graduate was announced and walked across the stage to receive their diplomas from School Board Chair Phil Klenk, in a mostly empty gymnasium populated with only a few GFW staff, and a few members of their immediate family. Once the graduates had received their diploma, they headed back out the door. On Saturday, June 6, the class assembled again, with their families in their vehicles, as they drove through the communities of Winthrop, Gibbon and Fairfax so other family members, friends and community members could congratulate them from afar.
