Scott Wright and Stephanie Wright

Class speakers predicted a promising future for the 47 Boone Central High School graduates of 2019 as they move on to their future endeavors.
In his speech, “Dear Future,” Scott Wright said his classmates are all capable of being outstanding in their fields. “We’ve come a long way with the help of our teachers, family and friends,” he said. “Now, the world is ours for the taking. Failure is not an option.”
He noted the class “couldn’t be more different” in terms of interest or talents, but they have developed and matured with the help of teachers, family and friends.
“We are ready to make our place in the world,” Scott said. “I can promise you that, no matter what, the world will be changed.”
Stephanie Wright spoke about “Packing Up” and getting ready to move from high school out into the broader world. In addition to packing physical items, she suggested that students would also be taking along their memories and lessons learned.
“There is always a sadness about packing to leave, but we will create new memories in our future,” she said.
She thanked the parents, families and friends of graduates for helping prepare them for the future.
