“My academic experience at Ripley High was exceptional and I feel more than prepared for college, all thanks to the caring and compassionate staff. I never imagined that my senior year was going to end so quickly but it has taught me that life is unpredictable and makes no promises. But the school and the community have done a wonderful job showing love and support for the class of 2020.”

--Victoria Hinzman, Class Valedictorian

“I’ve loved Ripley High ever since my siblings attended. My time has brought me memories and friends, taught me so much and given me many opportunities. Although I am sad our senior year got cut short, the time at home has given a chance to reflect and learn more about ourselves. I’ve learned that nothing is permanent, but we must continue to persevere.”

--Addison Wilkinson, Class Salutatorian
