St. Petersburg Catholic

Number of graduates: 94

Valedictorian: Evan Michael Kurt

Salutatorian: Kristen Leigh Zinge

Speakers: President Rev. Michael J. Conway S.D.B., principal John F. McMahon, salutatorian Zinge, valedictorian Kurt, Bishop Robert Lynch, and senior class president Alexandra Marie Steele.

Quote: "The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning," McMahon, quoting former U.S. Treasurer Ivy Baker Priest.

Class accomplishment: More than half (57) graduated with National Honor Society recognition.

Special moment: Steele ended the commencement by reading the Prayer of Consecration to Mary, Help of Christians.

Shout out: Even though families and friends of the graduates were asked not to yell or clap after the names were called during the conferring of diplomas, James Bret Skonicki got a loud "You the man!" from his group.
