Boone Central grads begin ‘adventure of a lifetime’

“The adventure of a lifetime begins now.”
That’s how senior class speaker Bailey Choat summed up her feelings about the future at Boone Central High School’s 2021 commencement exercises last Sunday, May 16.
The class of 49 members has spent a good deal of time and effort in preparation, she said, and yet there will still be challenges and lessons to learn.
The 2021 class has risen to meet many challenges in completing their high school, “and now we figure out what life really is,” said Bailey.
Speaker Abbigail Brodersen noted that the seniors’ high school careers lasted 1,370 days. The class gained understanding and met more challenges each year, and now will take on even more as they begin college, work and careers.
Abby said she is honored to be part of “the smartest and most talented classes in Boone Central history.”
She advised class members to approach life with courage, commitment and compassion, as they go on to accomplish great things in the future.
Superintendent Nicole Hardwick also addressed the accomplishments of the 2021 class, saying she has “great pride in this group” based on qualities like leadership, resiliency and determination.
