Members of the class of 2022 at Junction City High School received at least $1.2 million in scholarships. Assistant Principal Steve Green made that statement at the conclusion of the Senior Night Awards assembly at JCHS.

He also announced the $1,000 Bonecutter-Geary Community Schools Foundation scholarship for the class valedictorian. "And it's my honor to present that to Ryan Pham."

Pham will be the valedictorian in the first JCHS class to graduate from the new high school building. "It means a lot to me because it kind of proves all of my hard work really went somewhere, and I'm glad that I could be representing this class."

Pham hopes to major in biochemistry and become an orthodontist in the future.

Katrina Muller was named the Salutatorian for the Class of 2022. "It's honestly insane for me because I thought I had lost salutatorian. I thought that I was now third in my class, so it was honestly a shock to even have it in the first place, so just really excited about it."  Her future plans include working toward a doctorate degree with a major in physics.

Commencement at JCHS is scheduled at 3 p.m. Sunday.
