Based on academic achievement alone. Kiana Stender and Luke Orr are Central’s top female and male graduates. They recently answered questions about being the head of the class, their post-high school plans and their advice for Central undersclassmen.

Mr. Yanda has informed me that you are the top male and female graduates at Central. What does it mean to you to have achieved that distinction?
