Today’s highlights

“I’m really involved with my music,” said Central Valley senior Corbin Croom. When he’s not making music with the CV drum line, he takes AP classes, has performed with the U.S. Army All-American Marching Band, attended Space Camp in Huntsville, Ala., and job shadows surgeons to prepare for his ultimate career in medicine.

Welcome to our annual graduation edition of the Valley Voice. In it you can find every graduating senior in the greater Spokane Valley area. Counselors at every school also gave us the name of a notable student to interview and you will find their stories in today's Voice as well.

There are too many seniors profiled to include links for them all here, so I'll just pick a few to highlight. Let us introduce you to East Valley High School senior Hunter Bonawitz, who has cerebral palsy and can't speak. Meet University High School senior Spencer White, who overcame an angry and troubled childhood to win a full ride scholarship to Gonzaga University. Then there is Corbin Croom, the Central Valley High School senior so determined to become a surgeon that he's already observed a dozen surgeries.

The smaller schools also have exceptional graduates. RiverCity Leadership Academy senior Jake Kennedy found his inner voice and has turned it into effortless writing. Liberty High School senior Tyler Wilson is legally blind, but you would never know it if you watched him play on his school's basketball or football team. Northwest Christian senior Cole Ramey nearly lost his arm in an accident as a young boy, but has been playing basketball with full use of his arm.
