Lyndon High School graduates 40 scholars

“We all take different paths in life, but no matter where we go, we take a little of each other everywhere,” is the motto of Lyndon High School’s class of 2013.

LHS valedictorian Gabe Clark and salutatorian Scott Farwell spoke about the new paths began by 40 graduating seniors the afternoon of May 12 as they accepted their diplomas from board of education members.

Clark told those gathered for the graduation that the class had reached their goals by helping each other as a family.

“There is no other group of kids I would have by my side,” Clark said.

He said their achievements came because the class adopted the attitude of “carpe diem” or “seize the day”.

“We will all become the best of whatever we choose to be,” he said. “We are always seizing the day and looking for that next goal to achieve.”

He said the class gave of themselves “to help make Lyndon High School the best place it could possibly be.”

Farwell said a bond formed among classmates, which he described as “unbreakable”, as “they unknowingly pushed each other to do their best in all that they were involved in.”

He said the classmates learned from each other, which shaped their “ideas about their young lives. Lives full of greatness.”

Farwell said although the graduates would be leaving the school, they would take cherished memories with them.

“Even though we will all be going our separate ways, we will always have Lyndon High School to call home,” he said.
