Concordia Lutheran High School has announced the valedictorian and salutatorian of the Class of 2020.
Megan Bordner is this year’s valedictorian. Alaina Marks is salutatorian.
The school year ended May 21. The traditional graduation ceremony had to be canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, CLHS announced that graduation has been rescheduled for July 11 at Parkview Field.
Because awards events were not held this year, CLHS posted lists of Senior Department Awards and Underclassmen Department Awards at clhscadets.com. Honors Academy senior projects also are posted at that site.
Megan Bordner, valedictorian, is the daughter of Kevin and Sherry Bordner. She plans to attend the University of Kentucky and study biomedical engineering. She attends Aboite Lutheran Church, and graduated from Emmaus Lutheran School. At Concordia, she has been involved in cross country, track, honors academy, National Honor Society, and the GAPP Exchange Program. What she loves most about Concordia is: “Concordia is not just a place to receive education. It is a second home with a second family. This family shows genuine care for the students, and it builds character that prepares them for the rest of their lives. The depth of these friendships are rare elsewhere, and I am incredibly thankful to have had the opportunity to build relationships within this family, centered in Christ, of students and faculty.”
