Editor's note: Nicole Johnson is one of the four valedictorians at Badger High School this year. She read the following poem at the graduation ceremony.

Last Game;

Cheering fades and the action slows.

Lights die down and the audience goes.

As players look back at the field once more,

Flashbacks of moments in victory soar.

Last Dance;

Songs mesh together and time is forgotten.

Post-prom plans have everyone talkin'.

As the tempo slows and the mood starts to drop,

Dancing students pray the music won't stop.

Last Day;

Tests are completed and yearbooks are signed.

Everyone relaxes and starts to unwind.

As seniors walk the halls for the very last time,

Thoughts of uncertainty - their only crime.

Last Class;

Final moments of the period drag by.

Attention is gone and excitement runs high.

As classmates anticipate the sound of the bell,

Reality hits and mixed emotions swell.

Last Goodbye;

Tears flow and departing words are exchanged.

Everything once known is about to be changed.

As we turn to reflect on the memories behind,

Decisions are questioned and doubts fill our mind.

While every new last spurs thoughts of the worst,

Each of these lasts brings about a new first.
