NEW LENOX – The Lincoln-Way Central High school Class of 2014 graduation was a joyous event for the 476 seniors as they received their diplomas as part of the commencement exercise held June 6 at the school.
The valedictorian, Michelle Dundek and salutatorian, Jana Mudrock, led the procession of school board members, administrators, faculty and students onto the stadium field.
Just prior to the ceremony, members of the senior class presented the Board of Education with a class gift. The gift, which was purchased with proceeds from candy sales and other fundraisers, is a complete upgrade of the courtyard. The existing mulch was removed and replaced with red and brick pavers. The gift also includes six new picnic tables, and a variety of benches, flower boxes, and perennial plants.
The gift was presented by the senior class officers Mallory Johnson, president; Breanna Weiss, vice-president; Jana Mudrock, secretary; and Andrew Munch, treasurer.
