We recently extended our congratulations to the graduating seniors of 2020. If you have been following us over here at H.A. Dorsten, then you already know we asked some of the seniors to do something special. Along with our congratulations, we asked that they share a short video with us describing how they have personally shown resilience in the face of this recent pandemic, and the impact it has had on their lives.

The response was overwhelming. We decided it would be best to respect the privacy of the submitting seniors, and will not be sharing the content of their responses. Believe us though when we say it truly was amazing to hear how the young men and women of these communities have pressed on, pushed through, and persevered!

We would like to extend a big thank you to all seniors who participated, and shared with us your stories. You are all remarkable in your own right, and there’s no question the future has a bright outlook for all of you.

Submission was open only to graduating seniors from Minster, New Bremen, and Arcanum-Butler school districts. We selected these districts simply because we have completed construction projects for these three school districts within the last two years. A panel of ten H.A. Dorsten employees viewed the videos, cast their votes, and one winning senior was selected from each school. Each winner received a cash prize in the amount of $400, as well as a custom H.A. Dorsten binder.
