Class of 2020 Spotlight: Ann Demaray (Salutatorian) Future Plans: Attend SC4 in the fall of 2020, and through a partnership program with Ferris State University, complete a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice. Favorite subject: Science One memory/highlight: "A vivid memory that comes to my mind is the time that I hit my first home run. It was during my sophomore year while we were playing at Owen-Gage, there were already two outs and I was up to bat. I had two strikes on me and I was under so much pressure because I knew the pitcher was gonna pitch a changeup. I took a step out of the batter's box to look up at my coach and he gave me a reassuring smile and a thumbs up to calm me down. As I stepped back in the box I felt more confident. I waited for the pitch and when I hit the ball I just had this feeling and I knew that ball was gone. As I ran to first base I watched that ball soar over the fence in right-center. I kept running and when I reached third base my coach gave me a big high-five and he had the biggest smile on his face. The best part was when I reached home plate because my whole team was there waiting for me as they all cheered to congratulate me."
