Eleven Country Christian School seniors walked across the graduation stage to receive their high school diplomas on Sunday, June 3.

The students were K'lyn Bush, Timothy Christensen, Anna Farner, James Funk, David Girrens, Deborah Grandle, Jasmine Griffith, Madeline (Mollie) Lewandowski, Kade McClaugherty, Meghan McGrath and Maddyson Weyer.

In her speech as salutatorian, Grandle told the audience a little bit about her classmates.

"When you spend day in and day out with the same people, you really get to know them well," Grandle said. "For example, I know that Kade is allergic to pine trees. I know that Jasmine, in all of her injuries, has never broken a bone. James can sing 'You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch' flawlessly. Mollie really enjoys assorted office supplies. Maddy does not have a brother. David has never had to have braces. K'lyn can recite a quote from any episode of 'Friends.' Anna loves to eat pickles. Meghan will keep on driving even if she's lost. And Timmy, no joke, is fantastic at playing the piano.

"My class is funny, competitive and passionate. We have been fortunate enough to be highly successful in the games we play—both in athletics and in Fortnite. We are talented musicians, comedians, artists, athletes and so much more."

Lewandowski was this year's valedictorian. She addressed her classmates with a challenge based on their class bible verse—Romans 8.28.

"At this moment, this whole process of completing high school and entering into our lives as adults is a little overwhelming," Lewandowski said. "We're expected to know what we're supposed to do with the rest of our lives, when in reality, we've had very little exposure to the possibilities. And while this is nothing new and each class faces the same dilemma, I want to challenge our class to be different in our response. I hope that each and every one of us will trust God to be in control of our life plan."

The graduating seniors plan to pursue college education and jobs in fields such as social work, engineering and nursing.
