Mayor Lee Posey would like to congratulate the 2020 graduates of Natchitoches Parish for their hard work and dedication in completing their secondary education. No one could have predicted when you started your academic career 12 years ago that this is how you would close this chapter of your life.

I hope many of you have taken the time to reflect on your academic career during this time remembering the educators who played a role in your success in where you are today, reflecting on your achievements throughout the years, and truly appreciating all you have accomplished on this journey in life.

While nothing could have prepared you for graduating during a pandemic, I hope you all have realized how strong and resilient you are as the world changes and do not let those changes limit your future success.

Mayor Lee Posey, the Natchitoches City Council and the City of Natchitoches employees wish our graduates all the best in their future endeavors as each school hosts their respective graduation ceremonies in the following weeks.
