As the students entered the field at Missisquoi Valley Union High School, a calm  settled over the crowd. The only sound that could be heard, other than music, was the voice of a someone greeting each student by name. Each smiled back. 

The graduating class of 2021 had 130 students cross its stage, 16 named to the National Honor Society and 8 entering the Vermont Early College Program. 

In a year that seemed so impossible, they made the improbable happen.
