Lindsay Childs (17)  was the commencement ceremony’s student speaker.

“Due to the guidance and encouragement of my instructors, I was given many different chances to not only prove myself but also shape the next generation of students. By giving me these opportunities, the faculty showed me how much they believed and supported me, as well as proving that they saw something in me that I did not see in myself.” – Lindsay Childs
