Years of studying, and weeks of preparation will conclude with a graduation ceremony tonight at 7:00 P.M. at Susitna Valley High School. Several weeks ago, Loudon Wilson sat down to chat with six of the thirty-five seniors that will graduate, about their “Su Valley experience,” and their future plans. First year principal Reese Everett also shared his thoughts about this year’s graduating class. These interviews were conducted on April 21st, and aired on KTNA Radio the following day. A few, but not many, things have changed since then. You can press the play button below the students’ names to hear their comments.
