Senior class vice-president Brittany Knight gave the graduates words of encouragement as well, welcoming everyone to this year's graduation exercises.

The 2004 class salutatorian was Chase Reeves.

Reeves told the graduates not to fear the world they were entering because they were all well prepared.

"We leave Goshen with knowledge in our heads, tools in our hands and love in our hearts," Reeves said.

Valedictorian Kristin Ricks reflected on her time at Goshen.

"In order to appreciate the present, we must look back on our past," Ricks said. "We made it and we did it together."

Everyone extended warm wishes and great hopes for the future for all the graduates.

With the presentation of diplomas, the 2004 class completed the journey they began four years ago and now move on to face a new journey.
