“Today is the day the training wheels come off. … Our life is finally passing into our hands. … Continue with courage and determination. … Find value in every step of your journey. You can find happiness in each day, in each breath. … Realize what makes you happy and pursue that. … This morning marks new beginnings. Tomorrow we set off toward the summit of our own dreams.” – Drew Whitley, senior class president
