Good morning and welcome family, friends, and of course, Class of 2015! We made it! I can’t believe we are graduating today; it has been a long road coming, but now it seems like everything is going by so fast. It feels like just yesterday that we were freshmen; I remember rushing out of class to find seats in the old, tiny cafeteria and walking around the huge construction site that is now building one to get to class every day. In hindsight, we were kind of like building one; like how it was under construction, we were also building ourselves and our knowledge to prepare to move forward. Today we are ending one chapter of our lives, so that we can advance to the next.
I have made so many fond memories at this school from watching Mrs. Davis singing at CWMP assemblies to food days with Mr. Petriken (and watching Mufasa die every year). I have also made so many great friends, who I will miss seeing and talking to every day in class and even the hallways. It has been a fun four years and while it feels sad to be leaving, it is time that we part and go our separate ways because each of us has a path we must follow.
