Local businesses sponsor grad keepsakes
Dalton High School graduating seniors received nice keepsakes in a tote bag thanks to local businesses, including T-shirts and vinyl posters.
DGKN staff report
DALTON Like last year, it was a tough and unusual school year. Students had the option to return to the classroom this school year but the pandemic closed the high school again in December because of a lack of substitute teachers. Some students were sent home throughout the year because of illness or to quarantine. Masks and social distancing continued to be the norm.
Seniors still experienced much success in the classroom and through their various activities. Local businesses pulled together to provide nice parting gifts and to congratulate each of the 77 Dalton High graduates who are heading off to college, the work force, military and to forge a new life after high school.
Keepsake vinyl posters printed by The Dalton Gazette & Kidron News office with graduates’ photos were made possible thanks to Village Motors in Millersburg.
T-shirts and tote bags designed and printed by The DGKN were sponsored by Village Motors; KIKO – Realtors, Auctioneers, Advisors – Peter, Kristen, Pete Jr & Jake, Your Wayne County Group; P. Graham Dunn; Lehman’s; Jim’s Transmission; BellStores, The Dalton Gazette & Kidron News and Deco-Crete. Also, the Gazette & News is offering a free one-year online subscription to the paper to 2021 graduates. All they need to do is email the newspaper at firstname.lastname@example.org.
