Congratulations, Class of 2020!

 

The Class of 2020 has shown incredible resilience in the face of uncertainty, and we are proud of how they demonstrate an enduring passion for learning, for others ahead of self, and for the living and active Jesus. Trailblazers at Whitefield, the Class of 2020 was the first fifth-grade class to join the Middle School and the first (and hopefully only!) class to graduate during a global pandemic. This class of 69 seniors submitted 383 applications and earned 313 college acceptances to 107 different colleges in 27 states. They have been awarded 130 scholarships collectively valued at $7.2 million (not including the HOPE or Zell Miller Scholarships). Fifteen students have attended Whitefield since 2007, and seven students will be collegiate athletes on baseball, cheerleading, cross-county, football, soccer, and track teams. Selfless in serving others, the Class of 2020 submitted just over 8,100 community service hours over their four years in the Upper School, with countless hours going undocumented.We are excited to celebrate their legacy at Whitefield, and we are glad that they will always be a part of the WolfPack! 

 

Here's to the Class of 2020- a class that will go down in Whitefield history!
