On Saturday morning, May 11, 2024, the sanctuary of First Assembly echoed with the buzz of excitement and anticipation. It was a day marked not just by the turning of tassels and the conferral of diplomas but by the celebration of achievements, the honoring of memories, and the embrace of futures bright with promise.

The air was filled with melodies as the FACS choir lent their voices to the joyous occasion, setting the tone for what would be a memorable ceremony.

As the proceedings commenced, Celeste Olguin, Class President, took the stage, her words weaving a tapestry of gratitude and reflection. With poise and grace, she welcomed all attendees, setting the stage for the heartfelt moments that would follow.

Malik Williams, Class Chaplain, brought a spiritual piece to the ceremony as he shared the class scripture and offered insights that resonated deeply with the audience. His eloquence and wisdom were evident, earning him admiration and applause from all present.

Alaina Street, the Salutatorian, stepped forward to deliver her speech, a poignant tribute to the teachers who had left an indelible mark on the graduating class. With reverence and appreciation, she quoted various educators, highlighting their unique contributions to the fabric of FACS.

Then, David Baker, the Valedictorian, stole the show with his unforgettable opening line, "Good Morning, Crusaders!" A familiar greeting that had graced the school announcements every single day, it served as a reminder of the camaraderie and spirit that defined their time at FACS. David's speech was a journey through the years, a reflection on the highs and lows, the triumphs and challenges that had shaped their collective experience. With humor, humility, and heartfelt sentiment, he encapsulated the essence of their shared journey, leaving an impression on all who listened.

As the ceremony drew to a close, the FACS school band filled the air with a familiar sound signaling the end of one chapter and the beginning of another. With diplomas in hand and hearts full of hope, the Class of 2024 embarked on their next adventure, ready to embrace the challenges and opportunities that lay ahead.

As we bid farewell to this group of graduates, we do so with pride and optimism, knowing that they are equipped with the knowledge, resilience, and spirit to succeed in whatever path they choose. May God's blessings accompany them on their journey, guiding their steps and illuminating their futures with boundless possibilities.
