A strong foundation

Crossroads Christian School graduated its 10th class Saturday morning, ushering 10 graduates toward the next chapter of their lives.

The seniors — Ethan Evans, Parker McClelland, Michaela Nicholas, Kayla O'Steen, Brantley Overby, Brooklyn Rooker, Tyler Satterwhite, Sullivan Smith, Holly Waddell and Lora Yount — were surrounded by family and friends as they reflected on their time at the Christian school.

The ceremony included a slideshow of all of the graduates, the presentation of the senior class gift to the school and the presentation of senior awards. There were also tables decorated with memorabilia from each student.

O'Steen, class salutatorian, said she knew the graduates were all asking themselves the same questions as they look forward to the next step in their lives.

"Regardless of our paths in the future, one thing is true for all of us: We have endured an adventure, a journey, to get us here," she said. "These classmates have built character in one another."
