Meanwhile, valedictorian Questin McQuilkin emphasized the new freedom graduates possess after the “grueling” days of high school were now behind them.
“We’ve grown together. Friend groups expanded at RHS, welcomed new members and thrived,” he said. “... The friendships that resulted from this growth will stay with us for the rest of our lives.
“This graduation may be the end of our high school experience, but it is certainly not the end of our growth. It’s been a good few years. Let’s make these next ones even better.”
