Sevastopol Graduates Class of 2017
Posted on 06/15/2017

Sevastopol High School held its graduation commencement on Sunday, June 4, 2017. An audience of more than 300 family members, friends, and staff recognized 43 seniors for their outstanding academic achievement, involvement in school and community, and for their leadership qualities.  Class valedictorians included Genevieve Andreae, Yunjeong Lee, Isaiah Spetz, and Lucas Stenzel.

Academically, the class of students scored at the top of their conference on college entrance exams and more than two points higher than Wisconsin’s student average.  According to Principal Adam Baier, 45 percent of the class earned a 3.5 grade point average over all four years of high school.  Due in part to their participation in Advance Placement courses, combined with ACT scores, helped Sevastopol to once again be recognized as of the Best High Schools in America as named by US News and World Reports.

“However, these academic accomplishments alone are not the only talents we will remember about the class of 2017.  I hope they remember how they fully shared their talents, how they treated others, and how they developed as leaders,” Baier said.  “My wish for them as they begin their journey outside of these four school walls, is that each continues to be involved.  Our community and nation need their talents and attributes.”

The majority of the Class of 2017 will be continuing their education with 68% planning to attend a two or four year college, and another 23% who have registered or plan to attend a technical school or college. 

“We wish them continued success and thank their parents, teachers, and the many other supporters of their journey so far,” Baier said.
