Dylan Smith, president of the Panther Valley High School class of 2011, encouraged his fellow graduates to "make the most of the time we have on earth and be the best people we can be" during commencement exercises last night.
During his address, he also paid tribute to his friend, Casey Williams, a 2009 Panther Valley graduate who lost his battle with cancer earlier this year.
"He inadvertently taught me an important life lesson," said Smith. "Do not live with any regrets. If you want something do not sit around and wait for it. Take it."
