The Wentzville School District held three separate high school graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2019 at the Family Arena in St. Charles on Sunday, June 2, 2019.
More than 1,100 seniors from Holt, Liberty and Timberland high schools walked across the stage to receive their diploma. This marks the third graduating class from Liberty High School, which opened to freshman in the fall of 2013. The Wentzville School District is the fastest growing school district in Missouri in the 21st century, adding hundreds of new students every year since 2000. A fourth district high school is being built in Wentzville to accommodate the continued growth and it is scheduled to open for the 2021-2022 school year.
Collectively, graduates have been awarded over $20 million in scholarships from institutes of higher learning and over 300 graduates qualified for A+ scholarships to Missouri community colleges or vocational/technical schools.
“We are extremely proud of our 2019 graduates and all they have accomplished,” said Superintendent Dr. Curtis Cain. “We are confident that they have the foundation and tools they need to prepare them for the next step in each of their individual journeys and that they will continue to excel and make their families, the Wentzville School District and our community proud.”
