Long County High School held its annual senior banquet Thursday.
The keynote speaker was Georgia Bureau of Investigation Head Agent Tom Davis, who graduated from Long County in 1976.
He told the seniors he thought there were three truths about life: decisions and choices define your life; life is a journey; and life is not measured by things you acquire, but instead by how you serve God and other people.
“What I’m sharing with you is from my heart and from the school of hard knocks,” Davis said.
“Your choices define your life and define who you are. … Always ask yourself, ‘What is the wise thing to do?’ … You will struggle sometimes, but it is by design so that you will learn to be dependent on God and not independent of Him.”
Davis told the seniors that everyone was created with the purpose of serving others. He also said they will be measured by what they give and how they positively impact others.
“You don’t have to be police officers or firefighters or teachers. Whatever you are called to do, you can serve,” the GBI agent said.
After Davis’ presentation, senior banquet books were distributed and individual awards and scholarships were announced.
Angel Dennison was named valedictorian, and Rochelle Leigh Cote was named salutatorian.
