What a successful evening with great presentations! Seniors presented on May 28 and were able to share all the ways they have grown as people. 18 students presented to panels of three judges. Parents and family members came out for support. Several underclassmen all came to show support, and to learn what they will be responsible for doing as seniors. It was a great success!
