SMSD News: Celebrate 2022 Commencement Week

The Shawnee Mission School District (SMSD) is thrilled to celebrate the Class of 2022!

We hope our community will join us in congratulating all of our high school seniors for their remarkable accomplishments. We also extend our appreciation to the educators, family members, and friends who have supported these graduates along the way.

This senior class earned $2.1 billion in scholarship offers through the Shawnee Mission Education Foundation’s Scholarship Shawnee Mission program.

It includes 13 National Merit finalists and nine Presidential Scholar candidates. Three members of this class earned a perfect score on the ACT. They’ve earned regional, state, and national honors in science, general academics, business, journalism, NJROTC, music, art, technology, engineering, animation, and athletics. There is much to be proud of as these students receive their diplomas, and the entire community is invited to watch!
