What can I say? Graduation has almost come to an end, and with it, our high school careers, so treasure these final moments. To think, just 13 short years ago, we were shy kindergartners, stepping off a school bus for the first time, our eyes searching for our teacher in a funny hat.

Now we're finished with senior year — every box has been checked, every assignment turned in, every teacher bid farewell — and we're ready conquer the world, be it college, a career, the military or world travel.

It's been a pleasure serving all of you in student government, and I wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors. Now I'd like to turn things over to your class president, Sumner Richter, to close out the ceremony.
