ThunderRidge grads embrace future

Posted

The wind ruffled the blue gowns worn by ThunderRidge graduates on May 16 as they held their caps with one hand and reached for their high school diplomas with another.

"Today, we are stepping outside of our comfort zones of ThunderRidge High School into a world that may be overwhelming," Ciauna Tran said in her valedictorian address. "Be reminded that there are no limits to the impact we can make."

The 478 students at EchoPark Stadium in Parker smiled, waved and threw their fists in the air, celebrating the recognition of their accomplishments through the last four years as they walked into their futures.

"I implore each and every one you to value the day," new grad Douglas Maier said in his speech, "Life's Composition of Moments."

"Value today, value yesterday and value tomorrow if you are granted the wonderful opportunity to fulfill it."
