Class presidents Marco Bibrieza and Anna Niemela address their fellow graduates during the 2019 commencement ceremony. “Have the courage to follow your heart and fight to persevere your values,” Bibrieza said. “The day is here ... through diligence and dedication, we made it.” In conclusion, he encouraged his classmates to be true to themselves, live life with passion, be honest and humble, “but most importantly, let us never forget who we are. We are Falcons. We are a team. We are the class of 2019.” Niemela encouraged them to “Slow down, live in perspective and appreciate the change the world presents us with.” She also thanked Armstrong Principal Dave Dahl. “You will be missed immensely” and invited the crowd to stand for a round of applause.
