Loganville High School’s graduating Class of 2020 is the next Walton County high school in line to have its in-person graduating ceremony. It will take place at 8 p.m. Friday, June 19, 2020, at Red Devil Field. This too will be streamed live at this link for those who will not be able to attend. As well as the seniors who will be recognized for their accomplishments, also honored will be LHS Class of 2020 valedictorian Abigail ‘Abby’ Lassiter and salutatorian Jenny Mullis.
Valedictorian – Abigail Lassiter (Abby)
Abby will be attending the University of Georgia majoring in Biology.
“I feel so honored to have this title and represent my class in this way. I could never express enough gratitude to all my teachers and those around me who have encouraged me and helped me achieve this! There’s also such a strong sense of relief that I feel to know that all the late nights and difficult times throughout high school have all been worth it because they were all in pursuit of this goal,” Abby said, going on to say she will miss all the athletics most from her time at LHS. “We have a lot of great, hardworking, dedicated people in the program and I loved being a part of it. I went to all the football games and always enjoyed being in the student section, but even more than that I will miss being on the soccer team. I played varsity soccer for all four years of high school and I love my team more than anything.”
And it’s again being part of an athletic family that she is looking forward to as she prepares to head to college. “I’m so excited about getting to go to UGA football games and spending game days in Athens. I’m ecstatic to be able to have one of my best friends as a roommate and game day buddy,” she said. “I’m also so excited for the new opportunities that I’ll be exposed to in college. I’ve had dreams of going into the medical field for a long time and I’m so excited to have so many more opportunities to learn and meet people with such careers!”
Salutatorian – Jennifer (Jenny) Mullis
Jenny will be attending the Georgia Institute of Technology where she is planning to major in Environmental Engineering.
“I am so honored and excited to represent Loganville High School’s Class of 2020 as salutatorian. It is so rewarding to know that all of my hard work has led me to this,” Jenny said, adding she is definitely going to miss all of the wonderful teachers she’s had. “And the great friends I’ve made throughout my time in high school. LHS is truly such a special place and I’m incredibly grateful for my experience there.”
She is, however, excited about the next stage in her life as she moves on to college. “I am looking forward to all of the personal as well as academic growth that comes with attending college. Georgia Tech is known for its strong academics, so I know that it’ll be a challenge, but I am excited to learn and get involved on campus! I’m also looking forward to studying abroad and doing internships with the Environmental Engineering program.”
