"We might be entering a world that is unpredictable," he said, "but that's what we're here for, isn't it?"
Brittany Lapham, another member of the senior class chosen to speak during the ceremony, said she looks forward to the unknown, starting a new chapter in life with "new characters, a new setting and a new purpose." She credits those along the way, from mentors to peers, for helping make that possible.
"We've all been given an endless amount of support from our parents, siblings, teachers, coaches, counselors and friends," said Lapham, who personally thanked her own parents. "If it were not for them, there is no way I could have accomplished all that I have."
Though the Class of 2010 is made up of 170 students who are all "different and unique," Lapham said they all have one thing in common.
"That's the hard work, desire and dedication needed to be where we are right now," she said. In his speech, Tyler Huber also noted it was the bond formed between the students themselves that got them to where they stand today.
"We have always worked together to get through problems and attack challenges with the same Eagle pride that we were brought up on," said Huber.
