    MONONA – MFL MarMac's Class of 2020 has accomplished as much as any group of seniors the school has seen while going through things that none before it had. Sunday that group, 45 strong, was celebrated during the school's first-ever Virtual Commencement ceremony.

    Speakers including Principal Larry Meyer, Superintendent Dr. Dale Crozier, Valedictorian Destiny Berns, Salutatorian Eli Johnson and Class of 2020 President Ethan Stubbs spoke of the seniors’ resolve, character and accomplishments during the 1 hour, 20 minute ceremony that was broadcast live on YouTube.

    Members of the Class of 2020 did things that others before them have only dreamed of. They were successful in the classroom, with 32 of the 45 graduates finishing with a grade point average of 3.0 or better. They were successful in fine arts, with the Legacy swing choir having earned its first Division I contest rating in 20 years and with several students having earned All-State honors in speech competition. And they were successful in athletics, with football, volleyball, boys’ and girls’ basketball and swimming (as part of a shared program with Decorah) having earned conference or district titles this year.
