With hugs and handshakes aplenty, Highlands Ranch High School principal Jerry Goings ushered his 396 graduating Falcons across the Red Rocks Amphitheatre stage on May 21 after performances from orchestra and choir students. The tone of the ceremony was wistful as speakers reminisced fondly and seniors sang the class song “It's Time” by Imagine Dragons, with a lyric of “I don't ever want to let you down, I don't ever want to leave this town.” Class speaker Hannah Lemieux, while holding up a sign, got to the heart of the matter during her speech: “Class of 2014, you are so loved.”
