INDIAN HILL, OH (June 28, 2020) – Indian Hill High School Class of 2020:

Indian Hill School Superintendent Kirk Koennecke addressed the IHHS Class of 2020 during ceremony (Provided) 

We asked of you something that we have not asked of any graduating class before you. In the midst of crisis; in the midst of uncertainty; in the midst of anxiety – we called upon you to Be the Light.

You, who learned here.

You, who served here.

You, who created here.

Our senior students.

You are who we looked to for inspiration, and it is to you we will continue to look to use your light to guide us into the future. You have been Brave. We are so proud.

This is what we want you to remember as you enter the next chapter in the story of your life: when you feel lost; when you feel uncertain; when you feel darkness – come home to what you learned here. This is the place that gave you fuel. You grew in this space; it nourished you.

Let this place continue to serve as your lighthouse to guide you. Let this place be the one that lives in your memory as one of safety and love.

Your Brave family will always be right here.

Class of 2020, you have made history; you will make history. We are so excited to see the bright future you create for yourself and for our world.

We bid you farewell as students; we greet you now as Indian Hill High School alumni.

Never forget: You are, and you always will be, Braves.

Lead on.
