Valedictorian Christopher Wiley noted that the “training wheels are off” now for Prosser High School’s class of 2014.
Graduating from high school is an accomplishment, but that success took doing a lot of little things right, he said.
“Keep doing those little things,” Wiley said. “It’s only the end of the beginning.”
Salutatorian McKay Ashton cited many great memories leading up to graduation day, including teachers and classes, trips around the nation and something about a horse at freshman camp.
But now the future is straight ahead, said Ashton, who will head to Washington State University.
His roughly 150 classmates will scatter across the state, nation and world, representing their community and those who led them to adulthood.
“I am confident that wherever the class of 2014 goes, the people we meet will be impressed by what they find from small-town Prosser, and I look forward to seeing what we have accomplished by our 10-year reunion,” Ashton said.
