continued The Crown Point graduation ceremony included awarding of diplomas, presentation of awards and scholarships, a welcome by Superintendent Shari Brannock, presentation of flowers to family members and an address by salutatorian Hailey White.
White urged classmates to accept the challenges that lie ahead.
“Everyone always says enjoy your high school years, they’ll be the best years of your life,” she said. “One thing I have certainly learned in these past four years is that we determine our own future. If you choose to, you can make every year your best. To many of us, our years at Crown Point will be the most cherished time of our lives, and for others, the best years are yet to come. Today, as we leave, we are older, wiser, stronger and ready to face whatever life has in store for each of us.
“We appreciate all our parents, teachers and friends for they have each individually touched us in a way that we cannot explain, White said. “Everyday and every encounter with each person has helped carve us into the unique sculptures we are today.
“So, Class of 2012, this is the end of our reign here at Crown Point Central School,” White concluded. “We came in strong and we’re leaving stronger. I wish you the best in life and in everything you do.”
