Davis County High School graduated 106 students Sunday. The valedictorian of the class — Stephyn Wilfawn — addressed fellow classmates saying, “We are the architects of our future. We must respond to the challenges thrown our way.”
Wilfawn said every person has two things in common — birth and death — and must fill in the in-between years by “going forth to make a positive impact on the world.”
History instructor Joe Rasmussen (known as Rass) thanked the students for selecting him for the honor of delivering the commencement address.
“I’m proud to have been on the DCHS Faculty for 18 years,” he said. “You were born during my first year of teaching. Time has flown by, but I hope you’ll thank all who have helped you along the way. We will miss you — I will miss not seeing you in the classroom and on the athletic field.
“This is a burden that teachers must bear — our students move on — but it is exciting to see you move on. You are jumping into that ‘breeze’ and who knows where that breeze will take you on your journey in making this world a better place.
Several seniors shared inspirational messages through song during the ceremony. Chloe Fetcho sang “Distant Memories,” a song she wrote especially for her classmates.
Leah Rudd and Maddy Warning joined Fetcho in singing “I’ll Always Remember You” by Miley Cyrus. Elle Chickering performed “Don’t You Forget About Me” by Simple Minds.
Fetcho and Jada Will presided over the turning of tassels and rings. Leah Rudd and Maddy Warning gave the farewell saying, “We have watched each other grow into adults. We will be going our separate ways and I know we are ready.”
