Large majority of Willmar Senior High grads going on to school


WILLMAR — As in years past, a large majority of Willmar’s graduating seniors intend to continue their educations at 2- or 4-year colleges.

In all, 86 percent of the students graduating from Willmar Senior High this weekend plan to attend a post-secondary educational institution. More than a third of the class will stay close to home by attending Ridgewater College in the fall.
