WHS Class of 2020

Congratulations WHS Class of 2020!

Seniors persevere coronavirus pandemic and are ready to take on the world; Graduation ceremony video premieres May 18 @ 5:00 p.m.

Congratulations to the Wahoo High School Class of 2020!

This year’s class has proven to be tougher than most! Due to the coronavirus pandemic that swept through the nation, a virtual graduation was held on Thursday, May 7 throughout the day. Students arrived one by one in their caps and gowns and were allowed to pick up their diplomas and other academic honors that they individually earned. A compilation of the individual “walks across the stage” will be shared with each student and their family. A live graduation has been planned for Sunday, July 26, should it be approved by local and state health officials.

Fifty-three percent of this year’s graduates plan to attend a four-year college or university, twenty-seven percent plan to attend a two-year college or trade school, five percent plan to enlist into a branch of the military and fifteen percent plan to enter the workforce or are undecided about their future plans.

Seniors will attend 17 different post-secondary learning institutions, the largest numbers attending the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (15) and Southeast Community College (15).

This senior class also realized success on the ACT: eight seniors scored 30 or better and nine scored between 25-29.

Seventy-eight percent of the seniors who applied for local scholarships, as a class, have been awarded more than $80,000.

Graduation Celebration
J.K. Rowling reminds us that, "we do not need magic to transform our world. We carry all the power we need inside ourselves already. We have the power to imagine better." With great pride, we present the Wahoo High School Class of 2020 Virtual Graduation ceremony, recorded on Thursday, May 7. A special thank you to Tammie Tonniges, Bob Maass, and Landon Mattison of JEO for making this video possible!
