That was the message delivered by several speakers when 220 graduating seniors donned white and green caps and gowns and received their high school diplomas on Saturday.
Salutatorian Emily Blain noted that graduation is an important milestone for teens and that the graduates are wondering what's ahead for them.
In her valedictory address, Nicole Packard admitted that she didn't know one-fourth of the class. But she was sure all its members had grown as students and as individuals.
"Filled with its ups and downs, we have spent our high school years laughing together and crying together. And I think it's safe to say that we've enjoyed four years together as a class," Packard added.
