LYMAN — “We now present the class of 2014.” At roughly 8 p.m. May 30, 55 LHS graduating seniors tossed their caps in the air and took a giant leap into the next chapter of their lives.

With only standing room in what the LHS students call the Eagles’ Nest, the graduating class was brought in by the LHS band to “Pomp and Circumstance.”

Class president Kaylee Clark welcomed families, friends and her fellow classmates and Marina Jackson gave the invocation to begin the commencement ceremony.

The LHS band wowed the audience with a musical number titled “Pirates of the Caribbean” arranged by John Wasson.

Salutatorian Dillon Batt said he would be “short and sweet.” Batt said he had experienced many great times at LHS, met new people, gained a lot of knowledge and wisdom and had grown as an individual.

“That’s what it should all be about, the people and the experiences,” Batt said. “My classmates and I have many experiences, made many memories.”

Ashley Ott addressed the audience as Valedictorian. Ott reminisced about grade school recess and said by growing up together the class was like a family.

“The moment has finally come for us to break away and go our separate paths. Now the fun part can finally begin, college, our futures the part where we survive, get eaten alive or thrive. This is the time we venture off into the wilderness of opportunity and possibility, into the real world we go as future leaders.”
