Getting involved, staying focused and not sweating the small things are the keys to a great high school experience, according to Oshkosh's 2013 high school valedictorians.
The valedictorians participated in a variety of activities throughout their high school careers - the school newspaper, sports, musicals and more - and they said the friendships and fun they had with them stood out the most.
