St. Francis High School held its 2022 Commencement Liturgy for 180 graduating seniors on Sunday, May 22, 2022, in the school's Spyglass Gymnasium.
Families and guests were welcomed amidst the music of the student orchestra, choir, and band. Presiding over the liturgy were Father Jim Murphy and Father John Honiotes, who gave the homily. Delivering messages were President Dr. Betsy V. Ackerson, 2022 Valedictorian Emery Elizabeth Carlson, and Salutatorian London Mei Ling Brown.
“What a joyous occasion for us all to get together,” Dr. Ackerson said. “Today we celebrate and give thanks to God for the past 4 years we’ve walked together.”
Valedictorian Emery Carlson’s speech was organized around advice she received from her teachers, family, and fellow classmates.
“Anyone can teach us something valuable … so it is our responsibility to always be willing to listen and learn. My hope is that we can all go to college and beyond willing to learn from anything and anyone,” she said.
Congratulations to the St. Francis High School Class of 2022!
