FURMAN HIGH SENIOR class of 2021, I am honored to have been your school principal for these past few years. As a student and a senior, you have traveled a very rocky and un-predictable path to graduation during these current times. You have overcome setbacks and discouragement due to the impact of COVID-19 because you have been determined to beat the odds in the “Furman Way.”
Your perseverance has paid off, Seniors, and you made it to the next important chapter in your life. Some of you have enrolled in college, the military or a trade school. Many of you will work to help your families out and to support your own expenses. Whatever you decide to do, Furman high wishes you the best. We know that you will succeed because you were determined to reach your goals and graduate, regardless of the limitations imposed by the pandemic.
The Furman high staff is incredibly proud of you and honored to have been at your side through this journey of tough times of social distancing and isolation by doing “what’s best for your success”.
Congratulations, Furman High graduate class of 2021, your journey to life and many possibilities has just begun!
— Hilda Castrellon, Principal
