DSHS Class of 2020

A graduation ceremony celebrating the Denham Springs High School Class of 2020 was held on the school’s football field on Friday, June 26, 2020.

DENHAM SPRINGS -- After a tumultuous four years of high school, the Denham Springs High Class of 2020 made it to the end.

Nearly 500 Denham Springs seniors took home their diplomas following an emotional graduation ceremony in front of friends and family on Friday, June 26.

The ceremony, held on the school’s football field for the first time in years, marked the end of a trying four-year stretch for the local seniors, whose high school experience was bookended by unforeseen circumstances.

These seniors dealt with the Great Flood of 2016 in their first semester as high schoolers and then the coronavirus pandemic in their last. Seniors also lost three of their fellow classmates, who were recognized during the ceremony.

This led many seniors to take up the moniker “The Cursed Class,” though Principal Wes Howard encouraged the class to be grateful for the trials it faced — and ultimately overcame.

“These past four years have not been your curse,” Howard said. “They’ve been your crucible.”

Along with Howard, the ceremony included remarks from seniors Kate Thompson, Caedan May, Katie Howard, Sophie Faircloth, and Emily Kolb. It also included the recognition of honors graduates, the presentation of awards, and the awarding of diplomas.

The ceremony concluded with the signing of the alma mater followed by the traditional cap toss.

Listed below are the names of all Denham Springs High graduates this year.
