The past few days have been busy ones for members of the Class of 2012, as high school students throughout Whitfield and Murray counties celebrated the end of their high school careers.
It is a time of reminiscing with friends, family, classmates and even teachers, while also looking ahead to future ventures and possibilities.
We hope the future is bright for each of this year’s graduates. Many will be working this summer as they wait for their life-altering college careers to begin.
Maybe four more years of school does not sound appealing to you, maybe the hefty price tag colleges and universities carry is a big turn off, or maybe you just don’t think college is right for you; don’t worry, you have plenty of options.
To all of you who donned a cap and gown and walked across a “stage,” whether it was at the trade center or at your school’s football field or gym, we hope you were able to slow down, enjoy that moment and remember that life is a journey in which you will remember how you got where you’re going more than the moment you reached your destination.
And congratulations. Toss those mortar boards into the air with pride and relief. You have earned it.
