REED CITY — Although one chapter has come to an end for the 2015 Reed City High School graduates, the next chapter is just beginning.

Family, friends and educators filled the RCHS gym on Friday to watch as graduates received their diplomas.

Monty Price, RCHS principal opened up commencement with a welcome to all guests and then conducted “important business” on stage — an all school selfie.

“That will be on twitter tonight,” Price said to the graduating class.

Many speakers addressed the students, starting with Natalie Baughan and Hannah Neahr, the senior speakers.

“Along with graduation comes the end of many things we have known as routine,” Neahr said. “Probably one of the most obvious changes is that we will no longer see each other everyday. After spending years together as a class we will all go our separate ways in life, but although our daily contact may cease, we will always hold on to memories we have made together.”

After superintendent Tim Webster presented the class of 2015, each graduate had their few seconds of fame on stage and received a diploma.

Students walked off the stage will a new outlook on life, but not without multiple handshakes from RCHS administration and a hug from Price.

“In one respect graduation is sad because it represents an ending to some of the greatest times in your life,” Price said. “But it’s also exciting to share the perspective of the day as being an amazing new beginning. You will all have a fresh start and endless opportunities to pursue. Regardless of your path in life, always put forth that championship Coyote effort in your pursuit of greatness. I’m confident you will make us proud.”
