LAKEWOOD — As the 164 members of the Lakewood High School Class of 2011 assembled forthe last time before becoming graduates on June 13, they received a three-part series of helpful tips for the future from their peers.
LHS Valedictorian Ternessa Cao opened with a Ralph Waldo Emerson quote, emphasizing that the students’ achievements are dwarfed by their potential for the future.
“From our past, we have had so many memorable moments, ones that have made us laugh to the point where our stomachs ached, and ones that have inspired us to be who we are,” said Cao, who thanked the students’ teachers, parents, families and friends for helping them make it this far. “For our future, we want to prove to them that our hard work and their dedication to us will be worth something. We will make them proud by going out there to be part of the community and to work at excelling in our talents. For the next few years and throughout our entire lives we will definitely face challenges, but we will learn and grow from them.”
