This year 410 seniors in the Class of 2021 became part of an amazing group: 38,000 Foothiller graduates. For 100 years, Grossmont High School’s students and staff have taken great pride in the traditions surrounding graduation. The challenge this year was to honor those traditions within COVID-19 protocols; amazingly, in person Senior Awards, Prom, and Graduation events occurred on campus, thanks to the efforts of GHS’s dedicated staff and students.
The weekend before graduation, on June 5th, seniors attended the prom, a prom like no other. Held on the east side of the iconic “Castle”, it was an amazing event. Something new was added this year with the addition of a “2021 Royalty Court”. The court was selected online by the senior class: Sunshine Astourian, Jessica Chammas, Kimmy Bond, Grace Hafner, Karsen Carroll, Harrison Cox, Caden McCulloch, Blake Richardson, Robert Tucker, Lily Ehrenfeld. From this court, it was narrowed to two by attendees of the prom, who selected Lily Ehrenfeld and Kimmy Bond as 2021 Royalty.
The following Tuesday, June 8th, graduation was held on campus.
