During her report to the school board, Walz explained that May was a month to remember for seniors at Detroit Lakes High School. Numerous events and celebrations were held, such as Capstone Night (final project presentations), an eagle feather ceremony, prom and graduation. She used her public platform to thank the board, parents and staff who made those moments memorable for the Class of 2022.

"Thank you," school board member April Thomas said. "You set a nice pace for those who will come behind you. And, we couldn't have selected a better person to get your perspective."
