The lessons were delivered to the 66 members of class by valedictorian Jason Yoder and salutatorian Kearstin Courter during the annual commencement ceremony Friday night in DeGraff.

“We have to take time to learn from our mistakes,” the valedictorian told his classmates.

“Our journey, whether it changes us in a positive or negative way is up to us.

Whether life takes us to college or into the workforce or off to defend this great nation, I encourage you to find something you love to do so you never have to work a day in your life.”
