Valedictorian Kayla Mason shares a speech with her fellow 2015 graduates at Wheaton High School Tuesday evening during commencement ceremonies. Mason told her classmates to go into the world with a purpose, and that a wise person once said that failure is just success in progress. She challenged the class of 2015 to live to their full potential, not to settle for mediocrity, and left them with these words of advice: "Your future is in your hands. It's time to divide and conquer." The salutatorian was Kelly Alvarado, who also shared a speech with her classmates. Twenty-one seniors graduated. Julia Kilmer reporter@cassville-democrat.com
