It will be a day to remember for their the rest of their lives, Rogers High School Class of 2017 Commencement.
Student speaker Emma Nevratil said she likened life to popular cartoons such as Dora the Explorer and Dragon Tales. “Dora the Explorer had adventures and she always had the map. We too, each have our own unique map. Some might seem invisible but it’s ok. All of our journeys will have unforeseen detours and roadblocks. But we have a compass.”
Student speaker Sara Mills added, “We’ve spent the last four years growing and becoming independent young adults and now it’s time to move on.”
Principal Jason Paurus closed with his signature tagline just before the grads tossed their caps: “It’s a Great Day to be a Royal.”
