The Crowley County High School senior choir performed “If Today Was Your Last Day,” by Chad Kroeger during the school’s 2017 graduation award ceremony. Performing together for one of the last times are senior choir members Mariah Landgren, Kendra Evans, Mary Crystal Muniz, Meranda Barnes and Megan Dotter.

Crowley County Charger P.J. Schurr is the Class of 2017 valedictorian. During the school’s graduation ceremony, he reminisced about the crazy “shenanigans” he and his fellow classmates pulled throughout the year, once putting the school's charger horse on their homecoming float and being disqualified because of the stolen horse. He hopes they will always be like family, there for each other. He received a $2,000 scholarship from Otero Junior College.

Megan Dotter was the salutatorian. She said, "You have to keep moving. Don't get stuck here. It doesn't matter where you go, just keep moving." She received a Robert Buell Memorial Scholarship for $1,500, an OJC Scholarship for $2,000 and a Crowley County Nursing Center award for $1,000.
