Commencement Speaker Michelle Haynes.
She was a member of the Honors Program and numerous honor societies, serving as editor of the school yearbook and photo editor, art director and Web editor of Cardinal Points, the student newspaper. She volunteered in the community, worked as a teaching assistant and traveled to Israel to assist on an archaeological dig.
“I challenge you to do more than exist in your own preconceptions of who you are, or who you should be,” she said to her fellow students. “I challenge you to live — to adapt — to find your niche and follow a path that is right for you.”
