United Will Celebrate Seniors This Sunday at Graduation


United High School is holding their senior graduation ceremony this Sunday May 15th inside the United Fieldhouse. Superintendent Jeff Whitsitt says, “after 31 years, the ceremony is still challenging and emotional.”

“That’s always a good day, fun day, hard day, actually. You’d think after 31 years it would get easier for me, but every year we have that graduation, I sit there and it’s just a hard day. Especially now that the group that is coming through, I’ve known them since they were Kindergarten Red Storm. It gets harder and easier at the same time.”

Seniors Paige Hall and Karrigan Sperry will be speaking at the event, and Superintendent Whitsitt says Cormaic Flynn is Valedictorian and Jacob Dutton is Salutatorian. The ceremony will start at 3 pm.
