Little Wolf High School in Manawa will hold its graduation ceremony Friday, May 25 at 7 p.m.
The Class of 2012 will have co-Valedictorians – Kali Draeger and Lindsay Kowaleski.
“I was really excited,” Draeger said after hearing she was co-Valedictorian. “My mom and family kept pushing me my entire high school career to try and be valedictorian.”
Draeger plans on attending UW-Eau Claire to study either forensic science or forensic anthropology.
“I wasn’t necessarily working towards it, I was just trying to keep up my grades,” Kowaleski said. “But then it got later into high school and I realized I really had a chance, I was trying to keep up my grades and I was really excited about it.”
Kowaleski plans on attending UW-La Crosse to major in Spanish and minor in German.
Krista Braun will be the Salutatorian.
“I was really excited when I found out because I knew that there were other students that were really close to my ranking,” Braun said.
“The faculty at Manawa is very excited and proud of our senior class, scholastic winners,” said Cindy Kelm, a guidance counselor for the School District of Manawa, “and we know that they will be going out and representing the community very well in the professions they are choosing to go into.”
