National Honor Society President Lauren Reberger began the evening by welcoming those in attendance and National Honor Society Vice President Hannah Pond delivered the Invocation.
Clay Community School Corporation Supt. Dan Schroeder, Director of Curriculum and Grants Kathy Knust, Director of Personnel, Data and Food Service Carolyn Kumpf and School Board member Dottie King were in attendance to show support for the students and their achievements.
Principal Tim Rayle introduced guest speaker and 2000 Northview graduate Tyler Fischer.
Fischer, the Branch Manager of Terre Haute Savings Bank, Brazil, remarked on how his life has changed in the 10 years since graduation.
"I promise you throughout life you will be faced with challenges," he said. "Even now there is competition among each other. I hope you never lose that."
Fischer commented on how priorities change with age, and the popularity many teenagers aspire for in high school will not always be important.
"It is the knowledge you gain and the wisdom you achieve which will guide you," he said. "You are all hard workers."
After the presentation of awards, First Financial Bank Assistant Vice President Amanda Swift presented Rayle with the Academic All-Stars Plaque and named Reberger the recipient of the Greenwell scholarship and Hannah Stewart the Greenwell scholar.
"There are key elements needed to persevere," he said. "But Lou Holtz said it best, 'Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.'"
