Joseph and I would like to take a moment to congratulate the students who will graduate as part of the 2012 Class of Independence County. These students have worked diligently for the past thirteen years pursuing not only their own goals, but the goals their parents and teachers placed for them as well. Graduation is the reward for a job well done. It is a time mixed with relief and anxiety, joy and fear, for while one goal has been obtained a brand new one stands in its place. Whatever life may hold for you pursue it with all your heart and soul. Remember, while everyone’s goals are different each one is worth reaching. The journey may not always be easy, but it is the journey that makes the arriving worthwhile.

Cover Note: The students who grace our cover are the top students among their peers and are to be congratulated. At the time of the cover shoot each of these students held GPA’s that put them in the running for Valedictorian at their respective schools. We wish them all the best. From Batesville: Lauren Gunderman, Danielle Fair, Russ Hughes, and Natasha Bray From Cedar Ridge: Jordan Steele From Midland: Austin Pearson and Emma Sellers From Southside: Zachary Branscum, Alexandrya Burroughs, and Jamie Young

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~Quoted in P.S. I Love You, compiled by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
