Back of graduates looking at cheering crowd

Members of the Stevenson High School Class of 2018 are approaching their futures as Titans with confidence.

"We have proved there is nothing we can't achieve,” said commencement speaker Seth Choulagh. “Seek your future, remember your past, and live your life.  Why?  Because we are Titans!”

Stevenson High School honored 518 graduates this year at commencement ceremonies June 9, held this year at DTE Energy Music Theatre.

“Today, I want you to look at the world around you and envision yourself in it,” said student Mariam Sayed. “And as you face various obstacles, I want you to remember 3 things: In a world full of opaque criticism, thrive on a ray of hope; In a world full of winding uncertainty, strive to be a beacon of light; And in a world full of never-ending superstition, be wise enough to believe in yourself.”

President Gene Klida encouraged graduates to use the character they displayed in high school throughout their future.

“Follow your passions, be original, follow your convictions and most of all, be relentless in your pursuits,” she said.

Dr. Christine Johns remarked that this was the first graduating class to be born and lived their lives completely in the 21st century, noting the changes they have experienced in 18 short years.

“Through the lenses of experience, I hope you continue to marvel at this world and the endless possibilities that are before you,” she said.
