GOSHEN – More than 350 Goshen High School seniors received their diplomas Sunday, June 8.
Goshen High’s class of 2014 drew a crowd to the school’s main gymnasium at 2 p.m. for a one and a half hour graduation ceremony.
Diane Woodworth, superintendent of schools, opened the commencement. She spoke to graduates about her definition of success, quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson: “‘To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded,’” she said. “Best wishes to you. Go forth and create your own definition of success.”
Graduating seniors Sadie Drescher, Jennifer Esparza, Yebin Lee, Karis Neufeld, Anna Shetler and Pamela Studebaker also spoke to classmates.
“Make it a great life or not,” Shetler said. “The choice is yours.”
The Advanced Crimson Choir sang “A River in Judea,” which is an annual tradition.
Goshen seniors who graduated summa cum laude with a 4.0 GPA or above on a 4.0 scale were, in alphabetical order: Joshua Bustos, Sadie Drescher, Carlos Duarte-Contreras, Jennifer Esparza, Miranda Kay, Amira Kupty, Yebin Lee, Cade Leinbach, Bethany Metzler, Karis Neufeld, April Quintana, Gisela Romero, Emma Roth, Anna Shetler, Pamela Studebaker and Austin Weirich.
