Principals at Forsyth County's five public high schools had a lot to boast about as they talked about the accomplishments of the Class of 2017 and their fellow students.
One school's senior class had over $20 million in scholarship awards.
One school had to take the valedictorian and salutatorian out to four digits to determine a winner, and it was still over a 4.5 GPA.
One school brought the students who had committed to the military up on stage. Two of those graduates were addressed by their military rank because they have already attended basic training and are already soldiers. Another was not able to walk because he graduated early and is already with a military detachment.
Another school noted that one graduate already has an associates degree from the University of North Georgia -- before getting a high school diploma -- thanks to being dual enrolled.
One school has a cheerleading squad that brought home a state championship, while another hosts an engine team that regularly places in the top in national competitions.
These and many more accomplishments were brought to the attention of the thousands of parents and friends who attended graduation ceremonies during the last week in May.
