The motto at this year’s ceremony is from a quote from the late Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc.: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
Speaking at the QHS ceremony will be graduates Erin Nieuwenhuis, Heidi Bishop and Margarita Buenrostro.
Attendees are reminded that balloons are not allowed in the stadium.
