Congratulations to all Lassen County graduates

It’s graduation time all across Lassen County.

Graduation marks an important rite of passage, a milestone that acknowledges years of hard work and dedication and publicly recognizes the completion of educational goals.

Some graduates will advance to high school from middle school. Some graduates will continue higher education at college. Others will join the military or the work force. And others will decide to marry and start a family.

Graduation marks a time for family and friends to celebrate. It’s is a wonderful time for parents and grandparents who watch their children or grandchildren graduate. It’s a time for pride in an accomplishment that has taken years.

Many students view their high school years as some of the best in their lives. We hope our graduates will cherish and enjoy these last few moments they will share together as classmates before they move on to another school or find their place out in the world.

Yes, we offer our heartfelt and sincere congratulations to each and every one of you and pause to commend all our local graduates on a job well done regardless of the path they choose to follow in the future.

Now is the time for you to seize your future. Now is the time for you to begin to make your mark in the world.

After all, this is the moment you’ve worked for and anticipated for so long.

Enjoy your graduation and accept our congratulations. Now go out there make us proud.
