Townsend Community School graduates largest class

SANDUSKY — Each year since 2011, Townsend Community School’s graduating classes have grown in size. On Tuesday, members of its largest class started their futures.

More than 250 students from across the area received their diplomas from the Castalia charter school, filling the Sandusky State Theatre’s stage with a few more sitting in seats below.

Student speakers Emma Carmichael and Samantha Hill spoke of their journeys to attaining their diplomas and praised the school’s instructors for diligently working with them.

“To say I finished is the biggest accomplishment I’ve ever had,” Hill said. “I knew it would be hard work, but it was worth it in the end.”

“TCS is amazing,” Carmichael added.
