Continuing a tradition now in its 29th year, five members of this year’s graduating class from Stoughton High were named "Golden Knights" - Tagh Swierzewski, Samyah Nicolas, Hannah Lambert, DeShunna Frazier, and Chrisler Charles (pictured left to right in the group photo). These students have "demonstrated outstanding qualities of character, leadership, and service to the school community." Each year members of the SHS staff are asked to nominate seniors who deserve recognition for their service and commitment, as well as for their exemplary personal qualities. This prestigious award is presented annually at the Class Night ceremony. (A special thank you to Stoughton Co-Operative Bank for underwriting the cost of the trophies and plaques.) Congratulations to all five honorees! Read more about each Golden Knight recipient here: https://www.facebook.com/stoughtonpublicschools/posts/723485653112531
