On May 22 the senior class of 2012 said goodbye to the yellow halls of Centennial High School and stepped into the beginning of the rest of their lives. Four of the graduates, Jill Taylor, Sarah Zola, Elliot Campos, and Daniel Lee, spoke to their fellow classmates about the memories of high school and gave advice about the upcoming years. Centennial’s choir, Expressions, performed at the beginning of the ceremony performing “We Are Young”. Right before the graduates were allowed to move their tassels David Kessler sang I’m Movin’ On by Rascal Flatts that brought tears to everyone’s eyes. “I’m sad but I know I’ll be performing a lot more in my life so it’s like the first step to more coming” said David Kessler about having his last performance as a part of Centennial High School. The ceremony was filled with laughter, smiles, and tears but all in all the seniors agree it was a bittersweet moment to graduate from high school.
