Liberty High School seniors who gathered for Saturday’s graduation were encouraged to remember where they come from regardless of where they are bound.
Whether they’re diving into careers, packing for college or following any of the many paths open to them, the Class of 2018 has a long journey ahead of them and that journey starts now.
On Saturday, June 23, seniors from Liberty High School crossed the stage and accepted their diplomas.
In a ceremony filled with Liberty pride, words of advice, and reflection, the members of the graduating class heard a larger theme — to experience life while remembering their roots, to cherish their memories always, and to use the values of service, concern, responsibility and kindness that they were taught in Liberty.

The district is proud to announce that Liberty High School math Teacher Liz Fuentes has been selected to present at the Rural Schools Association (RSA) Annual Conference July 8-10, 2018 in Cooperstown, New York.
Ms. Fuentes was recognized by the RSA for her innovating use of technology in the classroom and how it provides students with a unique level of individualized instruction.
During her presentation, she will pull back the curtain on how she plans for instruction and assessments to drive instructional decisions that meet the needs of each individual learner. She will share with other educators how she builds and shares her detailed lesson plans using RightPath™, and how that same tool provides the assessments, lessons and analysis which makes remediation and acceleration easy.
