Sixty-three members of the Cedaredge High School Class of 2012 received their diplomas during graduation ceremonies at the school on Saturday, May 26.
The Class of 2012 chose a theme of forward looking living for itself.
The message of the class quote, "Go Hard or Go Home," of the class song, "On My Way," and of the parent dedication song, "Young Forever," was echoed in the address by class co-valedictorian Sam Williamson who encouraged his classmates to "Break your personal sound barriers.

Almost half of the graduates earned college class credits during high school or attained other academic distinction and honors.
