Majority of Brandywine grads headed for collegePublished 4:07pm Wednesday, May 30, 2012
More than 90 percent of Brandywine High School’s Class of 2012 plan on furthering their education following Sunday’s graduation.
Angie Roeder, high school counselor, said 61 percent of the 80 seniors scheduled to receive their diplomas indicated in a survey they would attend a four-year college or university. Thirty-one percent plan on attending a two-year school, while seven percent are joining the military.
“They all seem to have a plan,” Roeder said.
The Class of 2012 is Brandywine’s smallest in the past four years. Brandywine saw 97 students graduate last year, 92 in 2010 and 88 in 2009.
Graduation is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday in the high school gymnasium. Students are required to be at the school by 1 p.m. the day of graduation.
A cookout for the seniors will be held at 4 p.m. Friday prior to a 4:45 p.m. graduation practice at the high school gymnasium. A baccalaureate program is scheduled for 6 p.m. Friday in the lecture hall.
Guest Sara Gleason will address the Class of 2012. Co-valedictorians Angelika Anderson and Alex Reichanadter, and co-salutatorians Ryan Probst and Taylor Stowe are scheduled to speak during graduation.
Twenty graduates are members of the school’s National Honor Society.
