Henry David Thoreau said that what you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.  At the same time, it's satisfying to get a diploma for becoming a high school graduate!

Join us in celebrating our graduating Class of 2016 as they begin the next chapters of their journeys!

Good luck to you all!
