How quickly the school year has gone. In less than three weeks, the class of 2007 will become the 84th class to graduate from St. Paul High. Fifty-three seniors will join the ranks of more than 3,000 St. Paul High alumni, a treasured group.
I say treasured because our alumni are greatly valued. Their accomplishments are widespread and varied. We have alumni in all corners of the world, in all walks of life. Their achievements speak highly for the education they received. The difference they make in their corner of the world reflects the values instilled in them in high school, the life they've been encouraged to live, one that contributes its share toward bettering society. Yes, they are treasured wherever they have chosen to live and right here at home.
