Local 2019 seniors to graduate Friday evening

By Martin Graham - mgraham@recordherald.com

The 2019 senior classes at Fayette County schools will graduate more than 300 total students this week at their ceremonies.

This Friday, May 24 at 7 p.m., three separate commencement ceremonies will take place for the 2019 graduating classes.

The ceremonies include the Fayette Christian School — which is expecting to graduate seven seniors at the school —, the Washington High School — which is expecting to graduate fewer than 140 students —, and the Miami Trace High School — which is expecting to graduate just under 170 students.

The seven Fayette Christian School seniors are Taylor Brown, Jenna Sams, Spencer Hanusik, Michael Miller, Grace Ernst, Macie Riley and Sam Sheeter.

At Washington High School and Miami Trace High School, several students have worked extra hard over their school careers and will be honored for their successes.

For Washington High School — since 2016 — it has begun honoring any student who meets the established criteria as students who achieve “Honors With Distinction.” The criteria are: earning an Honors Diploma from the State of Ohio, an ACT score of at least 27, earning at least 28 credits, a G.P.A. of no less than 4.0 on a 5.0 scale, and passing at least one weighted class in each core content area throughout their high school careers.

Seven students have earned this honor and will be featured during the ceremony. They include Grace Gerber, Connor Lane, Christina Luebbe, Shrey Maniya, Hailey Snyder, Mackenzie Shaffer and Blaise Tayese.

Miami Trace High School will honor four seniors this year during the ceremony for their exceptional academic achievement. Three seniors tied for valedictorian and one senior earned the title of salutatorian, terms for the top of the class and the second-highest class rank respectively.

In the class of 2019 at Miami Trace, the three valedictorians are Macy Creamer, Victoria Morrison and Tori Evans, and the salutatorian is Jessica Camp.
