After the graduates' entrance, the welcome was given by Mount Baker Principal Jason Tichauer. O Canada was performed by the Mount Baker Vocal Jazz Ensemble and the Honour Song by Eagle Bear Spirit. Katie Elder, winner of the Sam Steele Sweetheart Speech competition, served as Master of Ceremonies. The invocation was given by Shannon Ryan, Hannah van der Roest and Danika Reid. School District 5 Superintendent Lynn Hauptman gave greetings, and Mr. Tichauer, Mr. Dan Noble and Mr. Dave Hill then introduced the Class of 2014 and presented them with their graduation scrolls. Grady and Sebben provided the Historians' message, and Fourie the Valedictory Address. The Grand March, to end the evening, was "Best Day of My Life," by indy rock band American Authors. Tonight the Class of 2014 celebrates with Mount Baker's 44th consecutive all-night prom, to be held at the College of the Rockies. To all members of the Class of 2014, congratulations, and may you all find success in all your aspirations.
