Fairview Holds Graduation

On Sunday, May 19, Fairview High School held its graduation ceremony for the class of 2024.

The ceremony began with Grace McPherson singing the "Star Spangled Banner" for the last time as a Fairview Warrior student. Junior Trent Karst then gave the welcome address while expressing congratulations to the graduates.

Brailey Anderson gave the salutatorian address, mentioning embarrassing moments and humorous memories that have stuck out for this class. She mentioned how those memories have shaped their class and the legacy they will leave behind. She ended her speech with the challenge and question: What kind of legacy do you want to leave behind?

The valedictorian address was given by Britta Poulson, who advised her classmates that when stepping into adulthood, that one of the most important things we can do is to roll with the punches and overcome the hardships, using them to grow.

The class speaker, Johnny Bennett, was then introduced by junior Deacon Gackle.

Bennett spoke to many aspects of growing up and life after high school. He said, You get to choose where you go, there is no wrong choice...just a different path. If a job doesn't work, switch it up. Change is good...change is scary. Don't stop. Keep growing. He ended by saying You don't have to have all the answers right now. Be open to new experiences. Take risks and try new things.

Following Bennett's speech, the choir preformed One Republic song "I Lived" followed by the presentation of diplomas to the eager 32 graduates who then threw their caps and walked out to Fitz and the Tantrums song "Handclap."
