NUMBER OF GRADUATES: 592

VALEDICTORIANS: Savannah Ryburn (traditional); Zaydi Javeed (IB)

SALUTATORIANS: Demetra Pantelis (traditional); Aadith Moorthy (IB)

SPEAKERS: Javeed, Ryburn, SGA president Lena Schwallenberg and senior class president Sara Kurtovic.

ENCOURAGEMENT: "Remember that the present is a gift," Schwallenberg said. "The last four years have turned us into Olympic hopefuls ... award-winning writers, and so much more."

BIG FANS: Nicholas Awad, Benjamin Fishman, Robert Gaines, Mackenzie Geier, Skyler Martin and Angie Nagib were among the students who received the loudest applause, the longest air horn blasts and resounding cheers from those in attendance.

CLASS GIFT: The Class of 2014 donated funds to complete a gift originally proposed by the Class of 2013. Both classes contributed to the construction of a rock formation bearing the initials "PHU," which will be located at the school's football field. This year's class also added a Nelson Mandela quote to a wall in the school library — "A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination."
