2021 Swedes have graduated as of Sunday, May 9th. The Times is proud of the young adults that made up the Senior class of Gothenburg High School and next week we will be releasing a phenomenal photo spread and special graduation section to commemorate their accomplishment. The class of 2021 was the 124th class to graduate from Gothenburg High School and they survived a global pandemic. They persevered through the unknown to obtain a somewhat normal high school experience. Because of that, we wanted to do something special for them. Stay tuned for the special keepsake edition coming up next week on May 20th!
