CEDARVILLE — They may be small in number, but members of Cedarville High School’s class of 2017 are expected to have a huge impact on society.
“I truly believe our graduating class will change the world for the better,” Principal Chad Haemmerle said. “I cannot say enough about the class of 2017, their work ethic, their achievements, and probably most importantly who they are as people, and how they represent themselves is second to none.”
In all, 54 will receive diplomas during commencement, 8 p.m. Saturday, May 27 at Central State University. Of the grads, 48 plan to attend college, three are entering the work force, two are joining the military and one is planning on mission work overseas.
The valedictorian is Alexis Voisard. She was active in all of the school’s music programming. Voisard ran track, played tennis, and was an active member of National Honor Society and Key Club. Outside of school, the daughter of Jim and Patricia Voisard, she has participated in Girl Scouts and 4-H. She will attend Wright State University and pursue a degree in English with a minor in music.
The salutatorian is Bryan Crossman. He was involved in National Honor Society, tennis, cross country, quick recall, tribe guides, and also served as a class officer. The son of Timothy and Renee Crossman, he will attend The Ohio State University and pursue a degree in material science and Engineering.
The class received $340,000 in scholarships. Haemmerle said that number may seem low, but it does not include the roughly 33 percent of students who will receive tuition remission by attending Cedarville University. Children of certain university employees are eligible to have up to 100 percent of tuition covered after federal loans and grants are applied.
