On Saturday, May 26, 2018, sixteen young men proudly graduated from Grand River Academy. Graduate Trent Wash provided the class representative speech, reflecting on his time at the academy and thanking the many special teachers who work and live at GRA. Valedictorian Chris Hall also spoke of the many teachers who made an impact throughout his past four years sharing: "calling the teachers mentors don't do them justice. They are our family and friends...the friendships and connections with my Grand River family is something I will always cherish and never forget."
As the Class of 2018 moves onward with their journey, may they always remember their time at Grand River Academy and to "never give up...don't ever give up."
