It is the extreme pleasure of the Enterprise to congratulate the Wellington High School Class of 2017. We have watched the graduates grow up and wish them the best as, now adults, they enter a new and sometimes terrifying phase of life. It is our sincere wish that the newly-minted alumni find only peace, happiness, and success. These photos are our send-off present to you — remember what it means to be Dukes!
