Everett Rama was named as the 2018 Valedictorian for Russell High School. “Students, as high school graduates, know that whatever you wish to pursue can be achieved with continued hard work and determination,” stated the ceremonial programme. “Remember to live your dreams, face every day with a positive outlook, and the world will be yours.”

The last days of school ended June 27 for more than 150 senior students at the two high schools in the Village of Russell. The main piece of advice for students at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School is to keep things in perspective as they go through life. “Remember that when you set your goals, there is no right or wrong path that will get you there,” said Principal Danny Palumbo during his speeches to the graduating class of St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic High School. “Every path will bring you face to face with tough choices, and others will have obstacles and hurdles that you’ll need to overcome. Some of those challenges will make you want to turn around and walk back the other way. It’s these experiences that will define you as a person. These experiences of making tough choices and fighting through the trials and tribulations will give you the confidence, independence, and will serve you well as you go on to the next phase in your lives.”
