When the Ralston Valley students who walked across the CU Events Center stage on May 18 were born, Ralston Valley had just opened for the first time. And 18 short years later, the school graduated its largest senior class yet."If there's one truth high school taught, from the first time we stepped into Ralston Valley to our last day, it's that community is a tangible thing we have all felt," said student speaker Mary Teresa Diesslin. "Each member of our class will install a positive piece of the RV community in everyone they meet."Speakers like math teacher Chris Braketa and principal Gavin Goodrich highlighted the importance of working hard, dedication and seizing opportunities in life."Have a bias for action," Goodrich said.

"And find something you love and run with it."
