About Jones, Hunt said, “Gavin is exceptionally bright and puts forth great effort on everything he turns in. Beyond academics, Gavin is truly one of the kindest students I have ever had in class. His positive attitude is an example for everyone. It has been a true pleasure to have had the opportunity to teach Gavin the past two years.”

After graduation, Jones plans to attend a four-year college, major in civil engineering and minor in music. He is the son of Rick and Samantha Jones.

“Profe Wilson is an inspiration to me because she cares for the well-being of her students while also providing amazing education of the Spanish language,” he said.

About Brenstuhl, Wilson said, “Lucas is a hard worker and goes above and beyond in all he does. I’ve known Lucas for the past three years and have had the pleasure to be his Spanish teacher for two years. He is outgoing, helpful and always willing to put himself out there and try new things. He was on the Costa Rica class trip we took this past summer and was an integral part of how successful and fun the trip was. I look forward to seeing Lucas be successful in wherever his life takes him.”

After graduation, Brenstuhl plans to go to college to study nursing and eventually obtain an MSN to become a nurse practitioner. He is the son of Rick and Charity Brenstuhl of Grove City.
