Special thanks to the following students for participating in this year's video (in order of appearance): Lola Williams, Talan Shultz, Kaylee Kramer, Keith Williams, Raegan Buxton, Jocelyn Heredia, and Connor McCullough. Additionally, to Dr. Whye, Assistant Superintendent, for gathering data and narrating.
