Three rambunctious boys ride their scooters down my driveway.Swap images in to add their sister and improve expressions.

Excitement punctuates the air this time of year as optimistic young adults go separate ways to pursue their ambitions in life. One thing this particular group will always have in common is the ability to reflect upon their past together as students and members of this small rural community in northeastern South Dakota. Each has experienced their own kind of history which will affect how they react to the world ahead of them. Good, bad or indifferent… to each their own. Always know that your time spent together has been time well spent.
Best wishes to the Grant-Deuel class of 2015 and may your lives be blessed.
