Graduates remember past, look to future

BOTKINS — While receiving their diplomas, 49 graduating Botkins seniors said good-bye to the school in which they have spent the past 13 years learning and making friendships.

Botkins School Board President Jack Koenig welcomed the graduating students, along with their families and friends to Botkins 104th Commencement Ceremony on Sunday.

Koenig reminded graduates that the words of their class motto will serve them well in the future:
“As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters.”

Koenig said both the successes and failures that each student has experienced through their school years has become part of his or her “life’s tale.”

“They are the learning experiences that help define the unique you,” Koenig said.
