            The Class of 2014 joined together one last time to receive their diplomas on May 18, 2014. This class had many accomplishments and are fit for success in their future. The 2014 valedictorian was Katie Carson. As I interviewed the eager graduate, Katie Carson, she had many thoughts and feelings to share before she moves on to St. Louis Christian College to major in Intercultural and Urban Missions. She stated that she was very thankful for her God given ability to memorize content, so tests were never a struggle for her. Carson also declared that becoming valedictorian was never in the picture for her until she learned about GPA, and suddenly she started competing against herself.

Katie remembers stressing out over Mr. Harms’ Civics class the most. She admitted that Civics had to of been her toughest class through her high school career. Her favorite classes were World History and U.S History. She announced that Mr. Sasse and Mr. Milano kept these subjects interesting, the lessons stuck with her the most. One question I asked was, “How did you maintain the highest GPA with other activities going on besides just school?” Katie mentioned that the dedication and priority to academics, with late nights of studying is what kept her at the top. She said “Sleep sort of took the back burner sometimes.”

Katie has countless memories about high school that she will never forget. Some reasons she is not going to miss high school is she no longer has to ask for permission to go to the bathroom, her locker, or even to the next seat over! She can go wherever she wants, when she wants. Katie does admit that she will miss school. She said, “I will definitely miss the people and the relationships we’ve built over the past 13 years. It’s weird knowing it will never be the same again.” I wish the best of luck to valedictorian Katie Carson and to the rest of the 2014 class. BHS would like to wish a happy and successful future to all and to never forget that you are and always will be a Brownstown Jr./Sr. High School Bomber!
