Riverside grads focus on achievement

Graduation speakers at Riverside High School last Saturday recalled many achievements by the 11 members of the class of 2021.
They also recalled many of the challenges and humorous moments of the past 12 years.
“This is a time of tremendous pride in accomplishment, but also some fear of the unknowns ahead,” said Riverside Superintendent Stephanie Kaczor. She expressed confidence in the class and their ability to handle the coming challenges due to the strength of character they have demonstrated and support from their families.
“I urge you express to your parents, family and community your appreciation for their support,” said the superintendent.
“We grow the most when we face challenges and uncertainty,” she said. “Stay true to yourselves, surround yourself with positivity. If you follow your passion, you’ll never work a day in your life.”
