Congratulations graduates, you did it! Like other Laker classes that have come before you, you showed up, did the hard work, and made your community proud. Like those other classes, you studied your textbooks and took your tests. You gave it your all on the courts and fields. You sang in the musical. You danced at prom. In many ways, it was a normal year. In one noteworthy way, though, it wasn’t. Unlike any other class before, you spent your entire senior year in a global pandemic – one

that brought unprecedented challenges. You bounced between virtual learning, in-person learning and a mix of both; you wore masks and stayed six feet apart from each other; you missed some games and events; you quarantined; you got sick, or someone you care about did. All year long, you faced hurdles. And all year long, you jumped over them. With flexibility and creativity, you took on the extra challenges thrown your way and overcame them. You navigated change, and mastered the art of adaptability. You showed your

strength, practiced your patience, and proved your resiliency. You met the moment. You learned, as your class motto states, that, “We cannot direct the wind but we can adjust the sails.” Now, as you reach the end of this big adventure called high school and look forward to future adventures to come, you can rest assured in your ability to navigate any waters, rough or calm. Life is full of moments just waiting to be met, and you, graduating Lakers, are well-prepared to meet them. You know how to adjust your sails.
