Those seniors receiving diplomas are Luke William Sessions, Danielle Wilson, Addison Bruno Biasi, Resha Nicole Bunker, Emma May Dodenbier, Tyler John Hughes, Dallin Russell Garlick, Josephine Garlick, Kaylin Louise Knapp, Sara Jane Anderson, Cody Vernon Burnside, Kasen Joshua Tietjen, Alex Daniel Beaumont, Alicia Renee Matthews, Fe’ofa’aki Fulton Paongo Jr., Jeremy Christopher Vogel, Charles Avery Woods, Dacon Leon Cox, Emma Estelle Hafen, Lorin Samuel Reber, Amber Nicole Sandoval, Micayla Renae Teschner, Brett Lee Black, Isabella Arsenia Wahl, and Taylor Marie Bryant.
