NEW PALESTINE — The New Palestine High School class of 2014 has officially graduated. The class of 264 students picked up its diplomas Friday evening and now heads out into the world to face what they hope will be bright futures. Principal Keith Fessler asked the standing-room-only crowd to welcome the students to the beginning of their adult lives. The seniors also heard from valedictorian and senior class president Benjamin Richter and salutatorian Grant Gish, who each implored their classmates to look back with fond memories and look ahead to greatness. Dressed in their traditional red caps and gowns, the graduates yelled excitedly when it was time to turn their tassels and officially end their high school careers. “I’m done!” one student yelled as the class of 2014 filed out of the school’s gymnasium.
