We wish to congratulate the Class of 2019 on graduating and to make it known how proud we are of them. We also congratulate them on their many accomplishments they have made in their lives and the challenges they have overcome. Every year a class graduates from Elwood Community Schools with these young adults stepping forward into the world in pursuit of their dreams and success. Every year many of these students take up paths to higher education that takes them far from their home of Elwood. Some of them return while others will find jobs elsewhere and with them, they continue a legacy which reminds us why we are proud to be Elwood Panthers! Wherever you may go graduates of 2019, we hope you do great things and strive to be the best citizens of your community and your country just as you have been raised to be!

We will have displays from Elwood High Schools through the years for the month of June to show pride in the Class of 2019 and to remind them of the legacy they are apart of.
