SENIORS ONLY! It’s that time of the year again when we begin looking for an “At Large” speaker for graduation. This is open to all seniors.  Interested seniors should submit a speech (5 mins long). A panel of five (5) teachers will read the speeches and rate them.  (The names are removed so that there will be no bias.)  After the panel selects the top three, they are presented to administration for approval of the appropriateness of content.  Mr. Casebolt then meets with the finalist and informs him/her that he/she will speak at graduation.
