ABOUT this section

This special Missoulian section contains graduation information from 39 western Montana schools. School officials were invited to send us the names of their graduating seniors, lists of scholarships and awards, profiles of top seniors and copies of student commencement speeches. Some schools sent all the information while others were able to partially fill requests. The information is not complete. Many students received scholarships after the newspaper's deadline had passed.

Students who earn scholarships from several schools only receive money from the institution that they choose to attend unless awards are personal and can be applied to any school.

Mary Gerber, editor of the Class of 2009, can be reached at 523-5310 or by e-mail at mgerber@missoulian.com.

Hellgate

I've been asked to talk for no more than two minutes about what I learned in my years at Hellgate, which makes me a little nervous. I hope that you don't misconstrue the brevity of my speech as a measure of my knowledge or my teachers' skill.

Carter Farrier

Co-valedictorian

Hot Springs

As we approach our graduation, we seem to think of it in terms of the work we have put into our education. But what we often forget is the amount of work that goes into us. If you think of our entire school experience, from kindergarten to seniors, as a machine, the teachers are the work input and the students are the work output of that machine. In physics, you learn that the work input is always greater than the work output.

How am I supposed to tell all of you fine folks just how unique and special the class of 2009 is? I looked up information on the Internet, I asked for advice from past speakers, my mom handed me sheet after sheet of inspirational material, and yet I couldn't think of how to put into words the appreciation I feel and the inspiration every one of my classmates have been to me.

David Cahoon

In these past four years, we have experienced many new things and changes in our lives. We have made new friends and found proof of the loyalty in the old. A transformation has occurred in our lives that will help us as we forge on.

Katherine Neher

Co-salutatorian

Loyola Sacred Heart

We have laughed together, cried together, slept on hard wooden floors together - all the quintessential bonding experiences of lore. … Ours has been an epic journey, scattered with challenges, personal growth, wise old men, that cosmic irony we still can't quite understand, and, well we haven't quite reached the conclusion.

Riley Pavelich

Co-valedictorian

Hot Springs

No one, not even the most driven, purposeful among us, ever leaves their high school graduation knowing exactly where they are going in life. Things happen along the way that prevent us from taking a straight line from where we want to end up to what we actually become. Maybe on one of these sidetracks we can find something we didn't think we would. Perhaps our true happiness isn't at our original destination, but we find it at one of our inevitable pit stops.

Lauren Cross

Co-valedictorian

Valley Christian

Don't tell yourself that you have many years ahead of you to pull your life together, to get right with God. Don't tell yourself that right now is the time to party and be careless. What if "right now" ended tomorrow? What if it ended tonight? Would you be ready? Would you have regrets?

Kristy Kees

Salutatorian

Frenchtown

Never sell yourself short by becoming a person you just settle for. But never forget those who help shape you into the person that you are and who you will become.

Heather Friede

Valedictorian

Seeley-Swan

The fear of failure stops many of us from achieving something more, so we too often search for something we are good at - something in which we can excel - and we restrict ourselves to doing that one thing. Many of us still are not sure what that one thing is. I know I'm not, but if we don't try to excel in just that one thing, we can broaden our horizons and continue to enrich our minds.

Emily Howell

Co-valedictorian

Hellgate

Spend as much time as possible with people who make you laugh. You'll have attractive abdominal muscles, less stress and you'll live longer. These are facts. Plus, if you're going to be alive, you might as well enjoy it.

Kyle Doyle

Valedictorian

Loyola Sacred Heart

I'm going to share with you a few quotations. All I ask is that you listen and think. From Bilbo Baggins: "I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."

Gatlin Lamb

Salutatorian

Victor

I know there is a lot more to learn and to be taught, but if you ask me, we have been in the "real world" this whole time. Now it's just time to take it to that next level. … It is a big step, but a step that I believe this class, that I love so much, is ready to take.

Brittney Dahlberg

Valedictorian

Frenchtown

It is my hope that whatever paths we all manage to stumble down, we all taste the fear of having no one to have your back. With that being said, I also hope that in moments like that, we all find who we are, who we can be. Loneliness will plague each of us in some way or another, but in the quietness of being alone, we will all find a person with a strength not yet discovered.

Meaghan Moore

Co-valedictorian

Valley Christian

I challenge you, friends, to stay strong in our common faith. Find those other believers wherever you may go and form strong friendships like the ones we have now. Make it a priority to make time for God in your busy life. And never forget where you came from. It is who you are, and it will shape who you become as you move on.

Katrina Morgan

Co-valedictorian

Hellgate

To survive we must learn to laugh at ourselves and have good friends who love us no matter how ridiculous we are. That is what Hellgate has been for me, a safe place where I could do awkward things and laugh, mess up and be OK with it, and most of all grow and realize life is awkward and what makes you, you is how you deal with everything it throws at you.

Joe Mitzel

Co-salutatorian

Loyola Sacred Heart

This is just a little piece of my experience at Loyola, but I think it shows the dynamic qualities of my education here. It has not been about dates and facts and equations - but people, relationships and ultimately family. And so I say thank you to the friends, mentors and family I have at Loyola. I pray you keep teaching with your heart and never lose it.
