All Heartland valedictorians and their parents were invited to the ceremony. Students who attended the event recorded greetings that will be featured in special announcements scheduled to air on KFVS12 and The Heartland's CW.
Valedictorians from three states were treated to lunch with featured speakers Justin Fischer and Kelsey Anderson, anchors from Heartland News, and Dr. Carlos Vargas, President of Southeast Missouri State University. Meteorologist Grant Dade and anchor and multimedia journalist Marc Thomas from Heartland News helped introduce each valedictorian and highlighted their individual honors and achievements. KFVS12's Vice President and General Manager Chris Conroy served as master of ceremonies.
"Heartland's Best is one of our signature campaigns and has become a true Heartland tradition," said Conroy. "We're proud to honor the hard work and academic achievements of these fine students."
This is the 33rd anniversary of the Heartland's Best campaign on KFVS12.
