On Friday, June 2, Hillcrest proudly graduated the senior class of 2017. One of the many benefits of our small class size is that each and every senior is well known and appreciated for their individual contributions. At the commencement ceremony, principal, Kathy Horan gives a personal charge to each graduate. It is one of the most emotional features in the ceremony. Special congratulations to Leigha Kunkel, Valedictorian.
