Approximately 227 Canal Winchester High School graduating seniors will say their final farewell to classmates beginning Sunday, May 27, in the high school gymnasium.

The students will also have an opportunity to say good-bye to their new and former high school principal.

Earlier this month, Kirk Henderson, who has served as the interim principal since February, was named the principal of the high school.

Henderson replaces former principal Lynn Landis, who left the school system to take the job as superintendent of the Bloom-Carroll Local School District.
