Choose your words, for they become actions. Understand your actions, for they become habits. Study your habits, for they will become your character. Develop your character, for it becomes your destiny.”

Friends and family packed the Douglas County High School stadium to watch 332 students from the class of 2014 graduate May 22. Wearing their purple caps and gowns, the latest group of Huskie graduates capped off their high school experience by walking across a makeshift stage on the football field. There were white flowers for the girls and handshakes and hard earned diplomas for all. “It's a class that continues to amaze me,” Douglas County Principal Anthony Kappas said. “You all take care of each other, regardless of the situation.”
