“His greatest gift of all is, He has called us to wake each and every morning for as long as we can remember,” Driskell said after thanking God. “We often take that for granted; none of us are guaranteed tomorrow. None of us even know if we will make it through today. We were given a solid reminder that in the early morning hours of Friday, March 17.”

On that morning, class member Kara Elizabeth Santorelli was killed in a wreck near Molino.

“We continue to mourn for Kara,” he said. “We must not be saddened by the fragility of our lives. We know that today could be our last but that does not mean we should live, like there is no tomorrow.”

“God has entrusted various different callings and gifts among those present here today. But it is our job to do with those talents what He intended us to do,” Driskell added.

The graduation ceremony paused for a moment of silence for Santorelli before diplomas were presented. Her diploma along with a cap, gown and Class of 2023 tassel were in a shadow box placed on a chair with the graduates.

Principal Mike Sherrill said in the Class of 2023, there was one senior with a GPA greater than 5.0 and 26 with a 4.0 GPA or higher.  Collectively, the class earned over $1.7 million in scholarships.
