The Courier-Tribune’s Senior Send-offs is an effort to recognize student-athletes at Liberty, Kearney and Smithville high schools who had the end of their senior year disrupted by school closures as a result of COVID-19 and related stay-at-home orders.

Best part about high school and this community:
"The best part about Smithville is that whatever we do, we do it together. It is a family bond, no one is a stranger, and we’re always supportive."
