(West Plains) – 280 students received their diplomas on Thursday night as the 2013 class at West Plains High School graduated.
The class speakers were Stephan Manley and Laura Grisham. Manley encouraged his classmates to make the most out of their lives after graduation:
Grisham humored and encouraged her classmates, telling them to reach for the stars by using an analogy from the “Toy Story” movie franchise:
The class of 2013 produced 7 perfect attendance winners for the senior year, 11 Bright Flight Scholarships, 152 A+ Scholarship candidates, and over $2 million of scholarships, and six students who received an Associate’s Degree through MSU-West Plains along with their high school diploma.
Congratulations to the class of 2013 from all of us at the Ozark Radio Network!
