MORAN — Nineteen members of Marmaton Valley High School’s Class of 2022 celebrated their high school commencement by looking back, and to the future Saturday.

Kendall Scharff, class valedictorian, described graduation as the end of a chapter, with the students themselves responsible for filling the rest of the blank pages, noting her class may provide the next batch of teachers, farmers or other professionals.

“Marmaton Valley has given us all the papers and pens we need to work on the stories of our lives,” she concluded.
