Casa Grande, Ariz – Nineteen Barça Residency Academy student-athletes graduated from Arizona State University Preparatory High School Casa Grande on Thursday night at the Desert Financial Arena on the ASU Tempe campus. Cristian Diego Bueno-Kling and Ryan Wells made history as co-valedictorians for the class of 2022, the first Barca Residency Academy student-athletes to achieve this honor.
“If there’s anything we hope that you take away from our speech, it’s that you need to be positive in every situation. Don’t look at something through a negative lens, but rather try to see it as success in disguise, or a way to better yourself or improve your situation. Failure doesn’t mean it’s over.”
– Ryan Wells, ASU Prep Casa Grande Co-Valedictorian
