The introduction of the class salutatorian and the class valedictorians will be made by a member of the teaching staff who was selected by the honored student. The salutatorian and valedictorians will then give their addresses to the audience.

Denise Loaring will also introduce those students who have earned a Core 40 diploma, and also the Top 10 members of the graduating class.

Principal Marshall will then certify the class; and superintendent of schools Tracy Caddell will then officially accept the class.
