This school has been a second family to me and I can't thank it enough for helping me throughout not only the good times, but also the bad. This community has helped shape me into the person I am today, which I hope you guys think is a good one. ... Today we close the door to a wonderful past, but open a new one to a bright future. ... Our next chapters begin today."
