Some Parting Thoughts by 2021 Seniors


The graduating class of 2021 back when they were freshmen

Mr. Hartman, Adivser

Hey Titan Seniors….. YOU MADE IT!!!!!!! Woo Hoo! There were many times over the last four years when you probably thought ‘when will this end?!?’ and today you get your answer! Seriously though, congratulations Seniors. You all have endured one of the most difficult senior years in the history of senior years. You have all felt the sting of disappointment and the regret for times and traditions lost, but you have also learned to adapt and you have learned resilience. We here at the Titan Times are so very proud of the graduating class of 2021, thank you all for the memories, for the smiles, and for continuing the legacy of pride we associate with Titan Nation.
