On Friday, November 21, Christian Buckley was named the Most Valuable Dot for the 2015 Senior Class. Christian is the son of Dana and Kathy Buckley.

Each year the senior class and the faculty nominate 3-6 students for the honor, but the faculty selects the winner. This year there were five nominees: Christian Buckley, Mariah Cook, Haley Fields, AJ Ford, and Kendal Sayre. Each candidate submitted a résumé to the staff and introduced themselves in a speech to the faculty before the voting.
Before voting on the candidate, the staff took the following criteria under consideration.
