Graduation 2017

Valor grads asked to share love

Posted

With arms around one another and heads bowed, Valor Christian High School graduates prayed as a class one last time before tossing their blue caps into the air. Applause rang through Cherry Hills Community Church in Highlands Ranch.

Speakers at the May 25 commencement ceremony shared a common theme: love.

“The world would be a far different place if loving others was a priority,” valedictorian Reagan Shane said. “Love brings happiness, healing.”

As with all phases of life — from infancy to childhood and childhood to adolescence — this one will bring challenges, keynote speaker Bob Dixon said. The Valor teacher encouraged parents to invest in their graduates, but also to let them go and trust that God will do the rest.

His advice for soon-to-be graduates sitting before him:

“I encourage you to live a life of love flowing out of gratitude into action."
