Stevenson Class of 2012 celebrates "Right Now"

 

 

Stevenson's class of 2012 members were told their future is starting with a blank slate.

"We are just getting starting," said Commencement speaker Jennifer Roehl. "Right now is our moment."

The Stevenson High School Class of 2012 has a historic status, according to principal Steven Pfannes.

"This class has accomplished more than any other class before it," Pfannes told graduates.

Utica Community Schools Superintendent Dr. Christine M. Johns reminded graduates that recent top movies like The Hunger Games and Avengers showed the importance of working together to overcome challenges in a world where rules constantly change. She also said their world will need heroes to create a better future.

"In our world – the real world – the challenges of poverty, disease and social tensions call for everyday heroes armed with the power of knowledge, the strength of conviction and the talent to achieve," she said.

UCS Board of Education Vice President Gene Klida urged graduates to "be worthy of all of dreams you have yourself today."

In saying farewell to her classmates, senior Jessica Suvak said: Where we go from here is only a question we can answer. We control our future."
