Pastor Josh Dotzler then addressed the crowd, encouraging graduates to always be at their best because that is when they will find success. It was a strong message that is sure to be carried with the graduates. The eighth graders then presented a rose to their mothers and grandmothers in attendance, allowing for much deserved recognition of their roles in each of the students’ lives.
Following the awarding of the diplomas, dinner and dessert was served to all those in attendance.
