Saugus High School Principal Bill Bolde told his graduating class of 2011, “Dare to dream and never give up.”

As family and friends arrived for commencement ceremony at College of the Canyons in honor of Saugus High School graduates Thursday evening, they were handed programs that summed up four years of preparing for the future.

An illustration drawn by graduate Brenna Butler on the cover of the program depicted a tree growing out of the palm of a hand. The message was simple but sufficient: “Grow Your Dreams.”

“It is important to be able to sacrifice what you are for what you can become,” Bolde told the graduates, some of them in navy blue gowns, others in white ones.

“I challenge you now to identify your calling, and start creating a road map on how to get there,” Bolde said, reminding them not to listen to naysayers.

Senior class speaker Vaneh Assadourian shared her own story of personal growth, and how she was able to pursue her own dreams.
“She succeeded because she dared to dream, and she never gave up,” Bolde said, before introducing her.
Assadourian shared some of her drive and commitment with her graduating class.

“Tonight is not about fear — it’s about joy,” she said. “Take a moment to feel proud about yourselves.

“We are heading for jobs that don’t even exist yet, but we are up for the challenge.”

Several noted graduates shared Thursday’s spotlight.

Jonathan Hong was the  torch bearer for the ceremony, as a recipient of the Golden State Seal, honor scholar and National Honor Society member.

Senior class vocalist Haley Standel sang the song “Reach,” and all the members of the Saugus High School Concert Choir sang the song “Anything.”
