4A Wednesday, June 18, 2014 Peather River Bulletin GRADS, from page 1A FreSh, performed an original rap song, Class of 2K14, with a little help from his class and the audience, gracefully navigating through a couple of technical glitches. After asking the crowd to observe a moment of silence in honor of "community icon Big Dan Leonhardt," senior Shawn Hughes sang the country song titled, "These are my People." In her address, salutatorian Claire Kepple said, "Our class will do great things wherever the road may take us." A self-described history nerd, Kepple related that she was thrilled when she discovered that the high school library had every QHS yearbook ever printed. She said she loves examining old photos and seeing the trends and faces of people both familiar and unknown. Kepple is headed to South America for a "gap year," where she will no doubt study faces and learn the region's history while helping others before she attends Westmont College. Valedictorian Kendal Hicks said it was a lifelong dream of hers to become valedictorian and after years of hard work and learning to ask for help, she finally did it. She said she had to make some tough choices, like skipping "Senior Ditch Day," but her goal was worth it. Hicks said that every student has made life-changing decisions. She thanked her classmates for sharing their personal tragedies and challenges with her - for revealing sides of themselves that aren't readily noticed. AP Environmental science teacher Matt McMorrow stands with graduates of his AP classes. Hicks, in her own words an "overachieving band geek," is headed to UC Davis to study environmental science and management, while continuing to develop her more private attributes of creativity. She thanked her family and God for supporting and guiding her on her path. QHS teacher Ron Logan was selected by the students to give the commencement address. Logan said he had "no doubts that the world would receive great things from this class." He told the class that he would like to add a subtitle Driveway Slurry Sealing Hot Melted Crack Filling Small Patch Work Free Estimate WE CAN ASSIST WITH ALL YOUI FROM PLANS TO THE FINI.

Quoting Mary Oliver, Logan posed the question, "'Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?'" He encouraged the graduates to be grateful to others for their contributions and to cherish every gift they receive. He urged them to "give freely and often" and to be happy and kind. He asked them to remember Martin Luther King's question, "What are you doing for others?" In closing, Logan told the grads to be ready for life.
