Seven Valedictorians in Carl Junction Senior Class

Updated:
CARL JUNCTION, MISSOURI -

"Remembrance and eucetratrophe, whatever that means..haha"

Eucatastrophe, a sudden, happy ending, similar to what this group of accomplished seniors is going through.

"I studied a lot, I cried a lot, but I made it. haha" Kate Dreiling says jokingly. 

This group of students aren't just study buddies. They're all co-valedictorians or salutatorians, the top students in their graduating class.
Their principal says it's normal to have around four valedictorians, but not seven.

"I'm glad i got my 4 point 0 after working all these years for it" says Will Bebee.

Getting these kinds of grades wasn't always easy. And involved countless hours of studying.

"Every night, yeah I don't really have like a life outside of school. But that's okay" says Chris Bennish.

So they're leaving incoming freshmen with some advice.

"If you can find like a dream or a passion that you have, it will make all the hard work that you have to do to get there so much easier" says Jera White.

"Get with a group of friend to study with because it helps a lot and don't slack off. Because it will make a different in the end" says Hayden Massey.

As this group collaborates to write their 10 minute graduation speech, they write on remembrance, remembering who they are and where they came from..

As they head off to college, whether they're studying to be a wildlife biologist or architect, they'll remember the times they had in these walls.

Co-Valedictorians: William BeBee, Christopher Bennish, Kate Dreiling, Joanne Kim, Hayden Massey, Brooks Neria, and Jera White.

Co-Salutatorians: Caden Cristy and Cathryn Denny

    MSSU Avoids Million Dollar Fine By Tweaking Its Tuition Increase

    Tuition is still going up at Missouri Southern State University, but it's tweaking the cost increase to credit hours to avoid a state fine. Missouri Southern's Board of Governors approved a 15 percent increase in student tuition last April, upping credit hours by $30. But state education law doesn't allow tuition increases beyond the consumer price index. To avoid a $1.1 million fine, MSSU adjusted down the tuition increase to $20 more per credit.
