Dunkirk announces top graduates

Josue Rosario

Dunkirk High School takes great pleasure in announcing Josue Rosario as the Class of 2018 valedictorian and Samantha Moser as the Class of 2018 salutatorian.

Josue Rosario would like to thank his family especially his parents Sixto and Nancy Rosario for all their support and encouragement over the years. Josue plans on attending Grove City College to obtain a mechanical engineering degree and possibly minor in chemical engineering. To highlight a few of Josue’s accomplishments, he is the Class of 2018 president, member of the National Honor Society and a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Other than outstanding grades, he also is an outstanding human, volunteering many hours tutoring at the Salvation Army and volunteering for the Chautauqua Hurricanes.

Samantha Moser expresses her gratitude in being honored as the salutatorian of her classes and all the amazing opportunities granted to her during her high school venture. She would like to thank her mother and father Kathy and Mike Moser, and her brother Joel for all their love and support they have given her. Throughout high school, Samantha has held a number of leadership roles that have shaped her into the person she is today. She is the president of National Honor Society, treasure of the Spanish Club, treasurer of Business and Marketing Honor Society and a student ambassador. She is very involved in her community. She dances, is employed and volunteers countless hours to help those in need. In the fall, she will be attending the University at Buffalo in their Honors College where she will be majoring in business administration with a concentration in finance and data analytics.

Teachers describe both students as “selfless, if anyone is in need they are both there to lend a hand or anything. They embody what DHS is all about.” Students trust their judgement and follow their guidance, they are wonderful peer role-models. Josue and Samantha are kind hearted, hardworking and genuine individuals. DHS is a better place for having had the pleasure to help educate and watch these two students grow in to outstanding young adults.
