More than 300 high school students from Shenandoah County's central and southern campuses will receive their diplomas during graduation ceremonies on Saturday.

Stonewall Jackson High School will hold its commencement exercises inside its new gym at 10 a.m., while Central's ceremony will begin at 7:30 p.m.

A total of 125 students comprise Stonewall's graduating class, and 199 students make up Central's class of 2014.

Central's valedictorian is Katelyn Foltz. Its salutatorian is Heather Landes.

The class valedictorian at Stonewall Jackson is Isabelle Sharman. Daniel Buhl is the salutatorian.

According to Charity Finks, guidance secretary at Stonewall Jackson, this is the first year in nearly a decade that there's been a male and female valedictorian and salutatorian at the school. She said it's either been two boys or two girls for the past seven years.

Out of the 125 students graduating from the Quicksburg high school, 32 percent will attend a four-year school, 43 percent will attend a two-year school, 5 percent are headed to a vocational school, 4 percent are joining the military and 16 percent are entering the world of employment.

Sharman and Buhl will deliver commencement speeches as well as Principal Mike Dorman, who said his address will instill a sense of pride among students in their school and in their traditions.

"You know how most classes, I've been doing this long enough to know that most of them happen to have distinct characteristics," Dorman said. "This one just has a variety of personalities in it ... they're exceptional."
