Shining moment: At the end of the ceremony, the graduates used sign language and danced to On Top of the World by Imagine Dragons, which was their class song.

Interesting visuals: Students from the school's American Sign Language program signed the speeches during the ceremony. There were fifteen graduates from the program. Valedictorian Ashelynne Hanold graduated alongside her brothers, Austin and Alex Hanold. The three siblings are triplets.
