Ryan Forester, Lary Martinez, Makeah Twitchell and Trevor Van Houten comprise Skagway High Schools class of 2007.
The mistakes we make are not going to stop us. All four of us are strong we have been strong since kindergarten and I believe we wont be weak because we made it..... Even though I am done with the Panthers, it does not mean that I The Machine will stop playing basketball.
-Makeah Twitchell, valedictorian
Guest Speaker Kent Fielding tells the class, The secret of life is to act like you have a secret and to make money off of it. Salutatorian Ryan Forester thanks the teachers who helped him reach his goal of graduating from SHS.
