Student speakers

Hudson 2022 valedictorian

Valedictorian Elizabeth Yray. 

Yray will be attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison next year for pre-med. 

“Even though I'm super excited for the next step, it's bittersweet leaving the kids I've been going to school with since kindergarten,” she said. 

Some of her favorite high school memories are from school dances and pep fests. 

She sends advice to incoming freshmen: don’t let expectations dictate your high school experience. If you go into everything with an open mind, you may surprise yourself and have fun with things you didn't expect to.

Yray’s advice will be further elaborated on in her speech, as well as a description of the memories that tie the class together.

2022 Hudson senior class president

senior class President Blake Buchholz.

Buchholz will be attending the University of Southern California for public relations. 

“I will forever be grateful for my time here at Hudson High School,” he said. 

Some of Buchholz’s fondest memories come from the everyday things that happen in classrooms, especially hearing teachers’ stories. 

Buchholz’s advice to incoming freshmen: get yourself involved within the school. There is so much that can be learned and lasting friendships that can be formed if you are willing to try something new and be OK with the potential failure.
