Nearly 1,500 Federal Way seniors have accomplished something great this year. The class of 2014 has worked hard since kindergarten and will walk on Saturday during graduation ceremonies at the Tacoma Dome.

Students — take a deep breath. This is an important moment. In fact, this will be one of the most important moments in your lives. Relish it.

To commemorate this important occasion, the Mirror will publish the names of all seniors who have met graduation requirements by June 14 in next week’s issue.

This includes students from Federal Way, Thomas Jefferson, Decatur and Todd Beamer high schools, as well as Career Academy at Truman and TAF Academy.

According to the Federal Way school district, many students cumulatively earned a district “first” by garnering approximately $11 million in scholarhips. One student even earned a full-ride scholarship through a doctorate degree.

We will also feature a few of these amazing students who stand out, some who have achieved noteworthy scholarships and others who will graduate with 4.0 GPAs and move on to impressive higher institutions.

Please look for this special four-page section in our June 20 issue. We hope proud parents, grandparents and even students will come by the Mirror office and grab some copies, and save this memorable moment to share with future generations.

We also encourage family members to submit photos of your grads so that we can put up a slideshow of the class of 2014 on our website.

Congratulations, students. And best of luck to each one of you as you move on to your next big adventure.
