“Your competitiveness and desire to achieve great things in your careers will continue to be driving forces for many years to come. If you only knew the way you have moved others to strive for greatness, the memories you have given to one another and to your families and friends. Take a moment to reflect on the hard work and the culture you have created at Avalon High School and be proud seniors, you deserve it. We salute you and will greatly miss you, but your legacy will live on forever. You are all amazing and we cannot wait to see what your futures hold. Thank you,” said Martinez.
