Special to the News-Times

COLDSPRING — The Coldspring-Oakhurst High School Class of 2021 Graduation Ceremony was held on Saturday.

Faculty, staff, families and friends gathered to celebrate the accomplishments of these graduates who have gone through so much in their school years.

This is a class that saw some of the most tumultuous times in school — and state — history, including Hurricane Harvey, Tropical Storm Imelda, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the record-breaking freeze of Winter Storm Uri.

But through it all they faced the challenges with courage and determination to press on, with positive attitudes and good humor in spite of the obstacles.

Congratulations Class of 2021. You have overcome and we are so proud of you. You will not be stopped.
