Important Senior Year and Graduation Topics

Class of 2022 Senior Spotlight

It's time to shine a light on members of the Class of 2022. These students have been an invaluable part of our Panther community and we're cheering them on as they pursue further education, a career or trade, take a role with the military or do something else altogether.
 
We asked our graduating seniors to share their plans, favorite experiences and what makes them Panther Proud. In the coming weeks, we will share student spotlights as we celebrate the Class of 2022. We are proud of our seniors and know they will go on to do great things! Read more about each spotlight's time at SLP here.
