TIFFIN– The valedictorian speeches were littered with references to shared childhood experiences (Harry Potter, Disney Channel, Netflix) on Sunday, June 4, at Clear Creek Amana’s graduation ceremony in the packed high school gymnasium.
“We’ve all found our P. Sherman, 42 Wallaby Way, Sydney,” said Grace Murray, referencing the Disney movie “Finding Nemo.”
A total 148 seniors made up the graduating Class of 2017, with 10 valedictorians and one salutatorian.
Senior Class President Sheyanne Koethe greeted the audience before diving into a valedictorian speech of her own. She was joined by salutatorian Will Swenka and valedictorians Benjamin Kirk, Maitreyi Lopez-Alarcon, Jillian Shrader, Joel Burzacott, Sarah Johnson, McKenna McCreedy, Grace Murray and Claire Navara.
