The senior class at Toledo School for the Arts is breaking school records with their college acceptances and scholarships. This group of 90 students has been accepted to 64 different colleges and universities and received scholarships totaling over $5 million from 47 of those institutions.
Students at TSA were finally able to return to the school in person on March 22 allowing this senior class to enjoy many end of year events and milestones that the previous year’s class unfortunately missed. Despite the challenges the year to this point has presented, these students are showing how resilient and resourceful they are!
11th & 12th grade counselor Carlyn Campbell-Johannes said, “The Class of 2021 have demonstrated remarkable resilience and creativity through the last year. Our seniors are an exceptional group of people, growing as scholars, artists, and well-rounded and compassionate human beings in the face of an enormous and sustained traumatic experience. I could not be more proud of who they are as individuals and as a group!”
Principal Letha Ferguson was also quick to praise this graduating class. “The young adults of the class of 2021 will change the world: they are compassionate, inclusive, ‘make it happen’ humans. Their creative way of thinking and problem solving will serve them in whatever they choose as their careers. And, they have survived the year of the 2020 pandemic and are still able to smile. I have no doubt that we have not heard the last of this amazing group.”
Toledo School for the Arts will be hosting their graduation ceremony for the Class of 2021 at the Huntington Center on May 22nd. Admission is by ticket only.
