Crisp County High School proudly announced their official 2018 graduation rate of 87.9% last week. This is an impressive 26.5 % increase in five years.
Crisp County High School principal, Dr. Russell Sowell, attributes the progress to the dedication and hard work of the faculty and staff. Dr. Sowell elaborated, “Our teachers and staff don’t start at 8:00 a.m. and certainly don’t end at 3:30 p.m. They are here after school, on Saturdays, and in the summer. They work together to make sure the kids get it. They do not mind doing it. Our people do whatever it takes. They are there for the kids and that makes the difference.”
