A committee of students, parents, staff and community members met in the fall of 2017 to discuss the future of the honors given to each graduating class. The recommendation from the committee resulted in the creation of the Students of Excellence and Students of Distinction honors as part of the commencement ceremony. Traditionally, the Valedictorian and Salutatorian spoke at Commencement along with the class president. Beginning with the class of 2020, we will have three speeches. The class president will speak along with two additional speakers. This will be determined using the following process:
- One speech will be selected from the students receiving the Student of Excellence honor.
- One speech will be selected from any student graduating with the class in that year.
