A Message From the Desk of
Superintendent Bill Morrison
To the Hamilton Township High School Class of 2016...

I want to take a moment to congratulate each of you on reaching one of life’s milestones and meeting the requirements for your high school diploma. Some of you have been with us since you started your education, and some of you moved into our district a little later. Either way, you’re all graduating today as Hamilton Township Rangers, and will forever be known as the Class of 2016.
You have achieved many things during your time with us, including: leading the way to a National Blue Ribbon Award; setting an all-time record in student attendance; and you earned more than 22,400 hours of community service.
As a collective group, you will be attending 44 different colleges, universities, or trade schools…and serving our country in all four branches of the military. Forty-one of you have earned scholarships totaling nearly $550,000.
You have raised the bar for our district with your high academic performance and success throughout our extracurricular programs.
Tonight is a night that we feature our valedictorian, salutatorian, and top graduates. We know that each of you have worked very hard in school because we continually analyze your academic performance.
While I have this moment to address you as a class, I want to talk to you about what is directly in front of you…and that’s opportunity.
As you go forward in life after high school, you will have many opportunities…with the first one being a fresh start.
You now have an opportunity to begin a brand new chapter in your lives that is full of hope and promise.
We know that there are some of you who may have possibly stumbled along the way and wished you had an opportunity for a “do-over” because you know that, if given the chance, you would do better or try harder…that time is now.
You have an opportunity to reinvent yourselves, an opportunity find a true purpose, and an opportunity begin your adult lives with a clean slate. Each and every one of you should be excited and eager for the future.
You’re about to begin what many believe is the best years of your life. The time between high school and “The Real World.”
Your work in high school has provided the opportunities mentioned a moment ago in regards to college, trade school, and the military.
You have an opportunity to learn and specialize in areas that will provide the skills needed for long, successful careers in fields and pathways that truly make you happy.
As you begin taking the next steps in your lives, and further your education, you will have opportunities to become community leaders.
When given that opportunity, take advantage of it by continuing to volunteer and make a difference. Whether it is with your church, a local non-profit, or something you do on your own…be active & take pride in your community and make it a better place.
Before I close…I would like to say…
To the parents and guardians of our graduates...I thank you for trusting us and having faith in our team to educate your children. We have become one of Central Ohio’s best school districts through your support and your children’s hard work. With your continued support, we will use every opportunity to make our school district the best in the entire state of Ohio.
To the class of 2016…
On behalf of our board of education, our administration, and all of our teachers and staff…I will end by saying congratulations, best of luck, and Go Rangers!
