Letter to Seniors: Luke Teschner

Dear Class of 2020,

It has been an absolute pleasure to witness your growth from eight and ninth graders to the young adults that you are today. The performances, Founders’ Days, end of year celebrations, all of the talent, humor, creativity and athleticism collectively all make you the exceptional group that you are!

I remember how I felt when I graduated from Woodsville High School in 2007. Senior year was a mix of excitement, anticipation and more than a little nervousness for what was to come. But the most important part is the fact that I was about to head out into a world that’s bigger than high school.

Maybe you share some of the feelings I had but I suspect, for many, it’s difficult to think about with how things have changed so drastically and suddenly. I am so impressed with how you have stepped up and taken on more responsibility than anyone really should ask of you at this moment in your lives. We needed you to help and you are doing it!

While we continue in our COVID holding pattern, and our end of year celebrations will be much altered from years past, remember that the journey ahead and the memories of the past four years remain. You are about to meet people in the coming months and years and have experiences that will change your lives forever. While you are waiting for the world, the world is also waiting for you. For you to come and continue to make your mark for the better. Hang in there class of 2020.

I’m rooting for you!

Luke T.
