2019 Graduation is rapidly approaching and the senior class has been busy making plans for their graduation. They have ordered their caps and gowns, announcements and they are planning their graduation parties. Every year with the conclusion of the first semester, the top academic students in the senior class hold their breath in hope that they will have the honor of being the top student in their graduating class. This year we are happy to announce that Kayla Johnson, daughter of Duane and Charlotte Johnson, will be the Class of 2019 valedictorian. Alaina Strey, daughter of Jason and Julie Strey, will be the Class of 2019 Salutatorian. Congratulations to both of them for their outstanding academic record over the past four years!

Kayla Johnson, Granton Area School’s Class of 2019 valedictorian

My name is Kayla Johnson, and my parents are Duane and Charlotte Johnson. I am the valedictorian of Granton’s 2019 graduating class. Throughout high school I have been involved in many different activities and organizations including FFA, National Honor Society, Spanish Club, student council and basketball. Although my schedule can sometimes get crazy, I have found the perfect balance between life and schoolwork including several college classes. All of these classes and activities have helped me to grow as a person, and become more prepared for the future that lies ahead.

Alaina Strey, Granton Area School’s Class of 2019 salutatorian

My name is Alaina M. Strey and I am the class of 2019 salutatorian for Granton High School. My parents are Jason and Julie Strey and I have three younger siblings also attending Granton (Kristin, Alex, and Kaiden). While attending Granton High School, I participated in many extra-curricular activities. I was involved in student council (where I served as president, vice-president, and secretary), National Honor Society, FFA, and Varsity Club. I have played Granton basketball since fourth grade and have served as varsity captain for the last three years. I also play varsity baseball. Throughout my high school career, I have maintained High Honors in academics, as well. Outside of school, I served as 2017- 18 Fall Fest Queen, and volunteered in my church and at the Granton Fire Department. I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, watching movies and baseball. I plan to attend UW-Stevens Point at Marshfield before transferring to UW-Superior or UW-Eau Claire to pursue elementary education with a double minor in Spanish and social studies.
