News and Announcements
New TKHS Assistant Principal Tony Bush said he was attracted to TK because of the historical excellence of the district and the small-school feeling. “I’m ready to help make a difference in the lives of students and help mentor them to be successful.”
Five Thornapple Kellogg High School film students took six prizes at the recent Meijer Great Choices Film Festival. The student public service announcements were judged among more than 350 entries submitted from around the state.
The TKHS Class of 2021 had to overcome many obstacles to get to graduation so it was only fitting that there would be a few bumps in the road for Thursday night’s ceremony. Originally scheduled to start at 7 p.m., the ceremony was moved forward one hour to avoid potential heavy rains. Still, strong winds blew off graduation caps, swirled national honor society stoles and whipped tassels around graduates’ faces.
Despite quarantines, remote and virtual learning, and numerous changes in place throughout the year, members of the Class of 2021 thrived and succeeded. Tuesday night, the class members were recognized for their achievements at the annual Senior Honor Awards Night. In addition to announcing recipients of numerous scholarships, students were also recognized for success from the various high school academic departments including athletic honors and awards.
The TKHS Class of 2021 Cruise, sponsored by the Middleville Lions Club, will start at 7:30 p.m., Friday, May 21. The parade start time was moved back a half hour from the original planned time to accommodate some TK athletes who will be in competition Friday night.
A few fortunate Thornapple Kellogg High School students walked away from school last week with jobs for the future – hired on the spot during a high school job/career fair. Others walked away with a wealth of knowledge about job and career possibilities in the area.
