Adams 12 School Board President Lori Goldstein emphasized the need for hope.
“As long as there is hope there is a chance for a bright future for all of us. Never give up hope. Also, be kind. Regardless of our place in life, we all need to be kind,” she said.
Todd Corn, a teacher at the school, told students to be involved in their community. He said that voting in local politics is just as important as national elections
“Norseman you will be the ones making the decisions. Your voice matters. We need you to vote. Vote early and vote often,” he said.
Theo Rogers earned the distinction of valedictorian and told his classmates each was intelligent in their own way. Each brings different valuable skills to the spaces they show up in.
“Colleges, trade schools, the military and the workforce all over the country will be blessed with (these Norsemen) for the next months and years to come,” he said.
