Meet Argyle High School’s Valedictorian & Salutatorian

Note:  the article printed in Argyle Living Magazine included incorrect information. This is a corrected article. We apologize for the mistake.


Valedictorian Carleigh Klusman

Carleigh Klusman served as class secretary both her junior and senior years and was a member of the student council, the National Honor Society and the Senior Leadership Committee.

The teacher she said impacted her the most was her English teacher, Leighann Fenter. She inspired her to come in early every day to study for her UIL event, which was apparently no easy task for this night owl. She believes that no other teacher has prepared her for college like Fenter.

Her favorite memories of Argyle are the countless road trips to games, bus rides to UIL events and just exploring new places and with her friends.

She plans to major in chemistry at the University of Michigan and pursue a graduate degree to become a radiologist.

Salutatorian Claire DeSpain

Clair DeSpain was part of the Argyle band percussion section as well as a member of the National Honor Society, International Club, Challenge Day Club, Senior Leadership Committee and the class government.

The teacher she said most inspired her is Michael Lemish, her percussion teacher. It is because of Lemish, she says, that she plans to pursue a career in education. Her favorite high school memory was attending a percussion convention called PASIC. She went with some of the other Argyle percussionists in San Antonio attending clinics, contests
and a solo competition.

She plans to attend Texas Christian University and become a percussion instructor and performer.
