Thorndike — The Mount View High School gymnasium was overflowing with proud parents and family June 10, as 110 seniors accepted their diplomas and bid farewell to classmates and teachers.

Regional School Unit 3 Board Chairman Myrick Cross encouraged graduates to "focus on respect for each and every human.

"I am proud of you and your parents are super proud of you today. I wish you the very best," he said.

Superintendent Paul Austin told seniors, "Don't be afraid to make mistakes. We all have faith in you.

"I hope you never lose the sense of who you are and where you come from," Austin said. "Enjoy for one last time your high school experience and hold onto the memories of your youth, your family and your friends forever."

Valedictorian Kristen Raven told fellow graduates, "Don't freeze, don't stop or think it's not good enough. Make your mistakes. We should welcome those mistakes, to do something that is scary.

"We're about to start the rest of our lives."

Salutatorian Alexis Bowman reflected on her Mount View experience and community.

"I remember my first day attending seventh grade. I will never forget how welcoming and humble the students, staff and administration, and community members were," she said.

"Whether it would be helping someone in a snowstorm or holding a benefit for a neighbor in need, you can bet the Mount View community will be there to help," Bowman said.
