My fellow graduates. Over the last four years here at Reagan County High School, we have learned a lot. Mr. Little taught us how to solve algebraic equations. Mrs. Dehnel taught us how to analyze a text and Coach Fuller taught us how to play and lose Egyptian rat slap. Even though he did lose once.

And all of this knowledge will no doubt be valuable as we move forward into the next chapter of our life. But the most important thing we learned over the last four years is how to build relationships and rely on each other.

We have all had to make new friends whether it is someone new or someone you have never talked to before over the last four years and some of these friends have become lifelong friends that will always be there for you. The friends that I made here I know I can count own.

These people sitting right in front of me I know I can count on them and they know they know they can count on me. High school was not an easy journey but these friends make the journey a little bit better. From laughing in Mrs. Dehnel’s class over the dumbest things to solving what we thought the hardest math problems in Mr. Little’s class, only to find out that there were even more difficult one out there, I knew that no matter what went wrong I could always count on my friends to make me laugh the next day.

I know that the relationship that was built among my friends was one that I could count on for the rest of my life no matter how far we drift from each other and they can count on me.

Next, I would like to take moment on behalf of myself and my fellow graduates to thank everybody that have helped us get here.

I would like to give a huge thank you to every teacher that has ever had me in there class and all the trouble put them through.

I would personally like to thank Mr. Little that taught many valuable life lessons that helped me get through high school. He taught me that we have it good and shouldn’t complain and instead take advantage of every moment.

I would also like to thank Mrs. Dehnel who has always supported us on our journey and always been proud of us.

Coach Robinson struck fear into us by showing us how hard adulting is and for showing us how to do it.

The last teacher I would like to thank is Coach Fuller that taught me that there is a time for everything.

He taught me that there is a time to be serious and there’s a time to have fun.

I would also like to thank my family that has supported me my entire life through thick and thin. And a huge thank you and love to my parents that have worked their entire life to get me where I am today.

As a final thought going forward I would like to leave you with a quote from a very wise coach named Coach Robinson. He said “Be careful where you go, what you do, and who your with”

Thank you all and congratulations to all the graduates and good night.
