Forty-two young adults crossed the stage at the Lake Roosevelt High School gym Saturday to accept their high school diplomas.

The class of 2015 was recognized and gave recognition to those who helped them along the way.

The class, whose motto was "Learn from yesterday, live for today, dream for tomorrow," a quote from Albert Einstein, gave more than 3,350 hours of community service while in the school. Yet, graduates studied hard enough to garner nearly $381,000 in scholarship offers.

Here's the list of honors and accomplishments as presented in Saturday's ceremony, plus, at the bottom of the story, our complete graduation special section:
