Savoring the moment was a recurring message during the Benicia High School graduation ceremony Saturday.
“Live for the present. …” said Valedictorian Jared Hanson in his speech. “Truly appreciate everyone in your life.”
Benicia Unified School District Superintendent Janice Adams also shared similar advice.
“Remember the power of pause,” Adams said. “It allows you to take a breath and enjoy the moment.”
Nearly 400 students graduated from the high school this year, and the class earned more than $400,000 in scholarship, Principal Damon Wright said.
