  • Lansing High School seniors prepared to begin another chapter in their lives Saturday as they received their diplomas.
    "High school was the first chapter in the journey we're about to take on," graduating senior Morgan Bromell said.
    She provided one of the honor graduate addresses during Saturday's commencement.
    Another honor graduate, Taylor Perez, said she and her follow graduates were ending Act I of the play called life.
    "We will never forget these past four years," she said.
    While at Lansing High School, the graduates built the foundations for the rest of their lives, Perez said.
    More than 200 students received diplomas during the ceremony, which was held at the high school's football field.
    "We finally did it," said Katie Curatola, who provided another honor graduate address.
    She told her fellow graduates that life's unpredicted events influence the future.
    "The world continues to evolve and so do we," she said.
    One of the other honor graduates, Leah Albee, encouraged her fellow seniors to "seize every day. Make every action matter."
    Katy Williams also addressed the graduates as the senior class president.
    She said Lansing High School isn't just a school for the graduates.
    "It's a part of us," she said.
    At the beginning of the ceremony, Dr. Rick Whitlow, president of the Lansing Board of Education, told the graduates that their work is not done.
    "It is really just beginning," he said.
    He told the graduating seniors the biggest mistake they can make is to be afraid to forge ahead.
    Whitlow said nothing can stop a person with the right attitude from achieving his or her goals. And nothing can help a person with the wrong attitude.
