It’s not secret that school hasn’t been the easiest this year. For students at Shelbyville High School, however, they’ve gotten lucky in terms of how normal this school year has been. Principal Kyle Ladd is excited for the potential of a really normal year next year, but is very proud of how his students faced the adversity this pandemic brought to them.
There hasn’t been a single time that in person learning has been interrupted for Shelbyville. Perhaps the closest call was a heating issue at the elementary school, but Ladd says the community stepped up.
Out of necessity last year, Shelbyville opted to honor its seniors with a drive thru graduation as well as a regular ceremony. According to Ladd, the pandemic may have forced their hand for the drive thru ceremony last year, but they liked it. They are planning it again this year.
The recognition of seniors doesn’t stop there as Senior Awards Night is coming up too.
Ladd appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show live from our studios in downtown Shelbyville.
