The Bristol Township School District graduated its high school seniors under sunny skies on Thursday evening at Harry S. Truman High School.
“Graduation is just a stepping stone on our path through life,” said class president Lauren Vogt.
Lots of people lose sight of what it means to be successful, Vogt told her peers. She assured her classmates that it isn’t money or material possessions.
“To be successful in life is to wake up every morning and be happy with what you have done,” Vogt said.
“We are here today to celebrate our achievements and commemorate one of the most memorable times of our lives,” class valedictorian Boris Guzman said.
“You were born to make an impact,” Truman principal Lyndell Davis began, urging the graduating class to find their purpose and make the most of it.
Dr. Melanie Gerhens, the superintendent of the district, told the class that every student has the ability to create a positive impact in society.
