Submitted story




MECHANICSBURG – Noah Thomas Wolf and Kasey Leigh Schipfer are the valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively, of the Mechanicsburg High School graduating class of 2020.

Valedictorian Noah Thomas Wolf

Noah Wolf, son of Scott and Kristina Wolf, was a member of the football and baseball teams. He was a member of National Honor Society and the Sentinel for the FFA. This fall, Noah will be attending Wright State University where he will major in biology with a plan to continue to medical school. Noah would like to thank all of the teachers that he has had throughout the years, as well as all of the staff for making his schooling at Mechanicsburg a great experience. He’d also like to thank his family for all the things they’ve done for him over the years. His parents, for always pushing him to be his best and letting him know he could achieve anything, and his brothers for always being there for him. His favorite memory in high school is after Friday night football games, getting to see all of his classmates and friends and going to eat at McDonald’s afterwards. He appreciates everything the school and community has done for him.

Salutatorian Kasey Leigh Schipfer

Kasey Schipfer, daughter of John and Marlo Schipfer, was a member of the varsity basketball, softball, and soccer teams as well as a member of FFA and the dairy judging team. She was also Vice President of Student Council, National Honor Society, and the Class of 2020. Outside of school activities, Kasey participated in 4H, including being a camp counselor, and enjoyed volunteering at the Mobile Food Pantry with her grandparents. This fall, Kasey will attend Ohio Wesleyan University to study Exercise Science; she hopes to become an Occupational Therapist. Kasey would like to thank her teachers and the administration for all of their support and devotion to bettering the students as people every day, and she’d like to thank her fellow classmates for all of the friendships over the past 13 years. She says, “This spring did not finish as we had hoped, but this virus is only a small piece of our 13 years together; it doesn’t define our class.” Finally, Kasey wants to thank her sisters for being her best friends, and her parents and grandparents for always supporting her, helping her get through difficult times, and teaching her to be the best person she can be. Her favorite high school memories include some milestone athletic accomplishments: a league title in basketball; and in softball, a league title, a Final Four appearance, and a 2019 State Runner-up finish. Kasey always enjoyed hanging out with her friends, whether playing sports, watching a game, or going to McDonald’s after football games. She says, “I’m so grateful for my time at Mechanicsburg because it was such a close, supportive, and kind community.”
