Celebrating Our Graduates & Honoring Our Retirees

Congratulations to the 141 Williamston High School students who are graduating this weekend. This senior class is unique and accomplished. They distinguished themselves not only for their many achievements but their perseverance over an extraordinary period of time to be a high school student. Looking back, I can remember most of our graduates as third graders during my time at Explorer Elementary. It has been a privilege to watch them grow up and become young adults who will make meaningful contributions to our society. I am extremely proud of the Class of 2022 and look forward to officially recognizing them as graduates of Williamston Community Schools at commencement.

Class of 2022

Thank you and congratulations as well to our esteemed retirees who represent a combined 164 years of service to our students and community. A truly outstanding group of educators. They will be greatly missed. We wish them the very best as they transition to a new chapter of their lives.
