‘Last true kids of ’90s’ bid farewell to Gloucester High School
"We have the honor to be named the last true kids of the ’90s," he said, "being born in the ’90s and starting kindergarten in 1999. They’ve saved the best for last."
"It seemed like just moments ago we were entering school to learn our golden rules," Morgan said. "But, as time progressed and the merger of Peasley and Page became Gloucester High School, we became one family." Although formed in just a few short years, these bonds will last a lifetime, Morgan said.
Quoting from his classmate and salutatorian Kevin Speray, Morgan said that "Fifty years from now, nobody will remember everything that went on through high school … But what we will never forget are the amazing friends we have made in the past four years … These kids we call friends today will be friends and family for the rest of our lives."
For his part, Speray gave his fellow members of the GHS Class of 2012 some advice for the future. "I like to think that there are road signs throughout life, pointing down the path to happiness and the things we want to do with our lives," he said. "And these signs contain advice and hints on how to work past the times of discontent that result from the inevitable failures we all will experience in the years to come."
