The top three members of the senior class took lead roles in Friday night’s graduation held at Rust College. Whitelow gave the invocation to begin the ceremony. Cathey, in her salutatory address, told fellow graduates to celebrate their accomplishments and then urged them to strive for success, which she said does not happen overnight. Jefferson, in her valedictory address, encouraged classmates to find something they enjoy doing and strive to be the best they can be. “Push forward; be persistent,” she said.
