Slideshow: Culver High School Class of 2022
Culver High School celebrated the graduation of 48 seniors, with three salutatorians and two valedictorians.
Salutatorian Bailey Anderson defined salutatorian as "a smart kid who stayed up way to late, drank enough coffee to kill a camel just to miss first place by a few GPA points."
Lindsay Lamb, a co-salutatorian, noted the unusual circumstances the class of 2022 faced. She noted how students missed half their sophomore and most of their junior years due to COVID.
Lexee Wittenberg, the third salutatorian, appreciated the moments she chose fun over being perfect and credited her inspiration to George Strait, "We're here for a good time, not a long time."
Valedictorian Tegan Macy recalled how running into a wall early in her senior year gave her a concussion that "shifted her life" away from her hopes of a great basketball season and FFA year. Later, on the sidelines, she realized the new joy and possible future of coaching. "Make the most of every one of life's changes," said Macy, "because they will develop you into the person you will become." Valedictorian Emma Richards congratulated her fellow classmates. "We have proven that even in the toughest of times we can persevere." The Class of '22 chose their 7th and 8th grade teacher to speak at their graduation. Mark Habliston quoted Maya Angelou for inspiration, "Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better."
