The class of 2017 toss caps in the air to celebrate graduation Saturday at Logan High School.

LOGAN - Like a rough stock rider, sometimes you're going to go on some unexpected rides, but those rides will give you the experience to get better and succeed, according to 2017 Logan High School Salutatorian Kaylee Bruhn.

Bruhn used her experience as a rodeo competitor as part of her speech Saturday during the commencement ceremony at Logan High School.

Bruhn said the teachers and staff of Logan schools have given the seniors a strong foundation to succeed. She said even with all of the teacher preparation, life is going to present different challenges for everyone.

"It's like being in the shoot ready to enter the arena for a barrel race," Bruhn said. "Once you enter the arena of life, there will be some obstacles you will have to overcome, but if you ride true, you reach your goal."

Before Saturday's ceremony began, Bruhn said it took a day to write her speech with the help of her family. She said she hopes her classmates will appreciate and understand her style of advice.

High school has given the graduates many memories, said Valedictorian Ashlon Snipes. Some they should and will forget, and others they should hold onto.

Snipes said as the graduates prepare to enter the world, they should take the best of what Logan schools has taught them.

"In time, we are not going to remember the trivial things from high school," Snipes said. "It will not matter who was liked the most or who had the best car; those things will not have an influence on our future."

Snipes said the friendships, memories and lessons learned in and out of the classroom are what will help to shape their futures. She said the teachers, staff and parents have all sacrificed and done so much to get them this far.

"We could not have come this far without all of you who supported us throughout high school," Snipes said.
