Statement from MIRE: “Montgomery High School was proud to give its seniors the send-off they deserve in the best way possible during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. They each have endured trying times and have earned the right to move to the next phase of their lives as more resilient humans than when they entered this unprecedented time period. We couldn’t be prouder of each and every one of them! Congratulations and Go Cougars!!”
