Southwood High School’s newest graduates were encouraged to strive for greatness as they turned their tassels on graduation caps Friday night, June 2.

At the graduation, 62 knights walked the stage, accepted their diplomas and officially became alumni, but not before their class valedictorian Makenna Dawes and salutatorian Taylor Heath said their farewells.

Before sharing words of encouragement, Dawes told her peers how, when writing her valedictory speech, she wondered what right her GPA really gave her “to stand here and give you any advice.”
