Graduation 2013: Keswick Christian



VALEDICTORIAN: Jonathan Douglas Easterday

SALUTATORIAN: Stephen Charles Coleman

SPEAKERS: Dr. David L. Harding, pastor of St. Petersburg Presbyterian Church; Jacob Carl Endrulat, student body president; Coleman; Easterday; Adam Daniel Foster, class president; Mary Kate Newton, Upper School Spanish teacher; Nick Stratis, superintendent.

QUOTE: "Most of our lives began 18 years ago, and for that we can thank our parents." — Easterday

SPECIAL MOMENT: Each graduate was introduced individually during the processional and escorted on stage by their parents. The ceremony also included each graduate's favorite Bible verse and a highlight from his or her high school career.

NICE TOUCH: With a class of only 33, each senior had at least one pew reserved for family and friends at Starkey Road Baptist Church.
