Legend High School’s 431 graduating Titans leave big shoes for next year’s seniors to fill.
“This class raised the bar of our athletics,” Principal Corey Wise said, citing success in baseball and basketball. “A lot of these guys were instrumental in our first victory over Ponderosa in football.”
It’s fitting then that their class motto, “Don’t count the days, make the days count,” comes from one of the world’s greatest athletes, Muhammad Ali.
They’re also a compassionate class, helping grant the wishes of two chronically ill children this year through a Make-A-Wish fundraiser.
Like a proud parent, Wise reflects on how the students have changed. Because Legend was a new school when they entered it and lockers weren’t readily available, as freshman the now-graduating senior carried backpacks “that weighed as much as they did.”
“I’ve seen them grow into young adults,” Wise said. “I’m so proud of them collectively.”
The class song, Imagine Dragons’ “It’s Time,” suggests the new worlds that wait for them beyond Legend’s walls.
They’ll make that formal transition during a 9 a.m. May 22 graduation ceremony at Sports Authority Stadium.
Class officers who will participate in the ceremony include Student Body President Madison Porter, Senior Class President Noah Mills, Senior Class Treasurer Jesse Van Divier and Senior Class Representative Adam Peszek.
