Posted Tuesday, June 10, 2014
The Loveland City School District congratulates the 328 members of the Loveland High School (LHS) Class of 2014, who made one final memory in what has been a year to remember at their afternoon graduation ceremony Saturday, June 7, at the Cintas Center on the campus of Xavier University. Loveland Superintendent Chad Hilliker shared with the class why he believed they had created such a memorable senior year.
“The Class of 2014 has had a year to remember,” said Hilliker. “You have had a year like no other graduating class from Loveland before. You had an excellent year in all areas: academics, music, art, and athletics. Truly you have not just had a year to remember but you have truly made a difference. You have made a difference for each other, our community and our school.
“You have been an amazing group of students. I know we will miss you greatly. While this may have been a year to remember, you will have many years ahead of you that will be filled with many memorable moments. Go out and make a difference!”
The Class of 2014 earned a total $13,055,423 in scholarships. Of the 328 graduating seniors, 143 received honor diplomas. In addition to the presentation by Superintendent Chad Hilliker, Loveland Board of Education President Art Jarvis addressed the class, along with valedictorians Nuria Alonso and Mollie Kowalchik, salutatorian Camille Mennen, Class President Anne Lehmann, Student Council President Emily Hoff, and LHS Principal Chris Kloesz.
“Believe,” said Kloesz. “Believe in what you know, and believe in pursuing what you want to know. Believe in what you do. Believe in what you say – and when appropriate, believe in what you do not say. Believe in who you are. Believe – as I believe in you. I wish you everything you so richly deserve in the years ahead. It has been an honor and a privilege watching your progress, cheering you on, and encouraging you toward your accomplishments. Thank you, Class of 2014, for being who you are. Congratulations.”
