Another grad class is leaving Lamont High.
42 students graduated on June 9.
"This crew is going to be hard to replace. Their personalities really shined through this year. They're easy going, but they accept a lot of responsibilities," said assistant principal Curtis Starko.
Starko is in his second year at the school.
"The one thing that really stood out is their wonderful sense of humour. I can bug them, they can bug me. We got along great! Their academics, their athletics and leadership in the school, they're going to be missed."
Miranda Kroeker was the valedictorian. Kroeker grew up in Lamont County and did her earlier schooling at Lamont Elementary.
"It was very honouring. I was very grateful to receive it. It was a pleasure to speak in front of my school and represent Lamont High," she said.
Kroeker's family is in the medical field and she intends to follow. She told MIX 107 she's planning on going to university for physiotherapy.
When she's not in school, Kroeker plays the violin, piano and is passionate about helping others. She has recently spent some time volunteering at the local health clinic and is involved with a variety of community services.
"It's been great! I'm excited to move on, but also sad to leave."
