A tally of future plans reveals 51 immediately entering the workforce, 146 attending universities or community colleges, 34 heading to technical schools, and 8 serving in the military.

“We both congratulate the Class of 2022 for all they’ve achieved and look forward to seeing what they will do next,” said Weakley County Director of Schools Randy Frazier. “While we recognize those plans may mean leaving us for a while, of course, we would like to see them eventually choose Weakley County as their home, investing in our communities, and supporting our schools just as Dresden, Gleason, Greenfield, Sharon, Martin, and the surrounding area have supported them.”
