Multiple Teams · Powdersville High Graduates 242; Half of Honor Graduates were Student-Athletes


Powdersville High School graduated 242 students with Commencement Exercises at Littlejohn Coliseum on the campus of Clemson University on Friday, May 24, 2019. Student-Athletes leading the program included Valedictorian Kilee Knight (Cross Country, Track), Salutatorian Georgianna Walters (Swim), Hayes Oliver (Tennis), Aspen Ridder (Volleyball), Isaac Hammond (Cross Country, Swim, Track), Liz Keller (Softball), Bry Thobe (Soccer), and Mikaela McDaniel (Basketball).  80% of the students leading the ceremony and over half of the honor graduates particapted in varsity sports.  What a demonstration that academics and athletics enhance each other and student-athletes can excel in both!   Many other honor graduates were active in Band, Chorus, Theatre, and other activities on campus as well.  Powdersville High continues to lead the state in graduation rates.  Congratulations to all the members of the Class of 2019! #schsl #PVHS2019 #MakingHistoryEverySeason! #GoPatriots!!
