About 700 seniors gathered this September for an annual event organized by Klamath Promise and the Herald & News. Students learned about the many opportunities open to them post-graduation. Singer, motivational speaker and author Jessie Funk spoke, sang and joked with the students from all over Klamath County. Funk told personal stories to motivate students to rise above the challenges they face in school and beyond. The event, designed to encourage high school seniors to “finish strong”, is an annual crowd pleaser and a great way to kick off the school year for the class of 2020.
Klamath Promise is a Regional Achievement Collaborative supported by SOESD and is dedicated to bringing together education, business, and community partners to ensure all students complete high school. For more information about Klamath Promise visit http://www.soesd.k12.or.us/klamath-promise/
