59 TSD Seniors began a new chapter in their lives on Thursday evening May 31st before a packed auditorium of family, friends and staff. Our Valedictorian and Salutatorian gave inspirational speeches about shooting for the moon and launching big dreams. Superintendent Bugen outlined a challenge to continue to Reach New Heights with Passion, Persistence and Possibility.
Among these graduates were four Honor Graduates, 35 students with college acceptances in their pockets, 32 scholarship recipients and a host of stories still unwritten. Mr. Mark Seeger gave an inspirational and moving commencement address about milestones in the life of his accomplished Deaf parents. Mark told the graduates “ You have to find what you love in both work, personal life and family.” “Follow your heart”, he said, “don’t fear what you will lose, and celebrate what you can accomplish!”
TSD Kindergarteners and Seniors performed the TSD School Song, while high school students performed the National Anthem. The TSD Sign Choir and Dynamic Studio provided exciting musical performances for their fellow graduates utilizing their technology and performing art skills and the whole house was rockin’ along with them!
That night they let the world know there is nothing quite like the Class of 2012.
