LAUREL HILL — Fist bumps and high fives were plentiful in Debra Adams' classroom Friday evening as the 34 members of the Laurel Hill School Class of 2013 prepared for their graduation ceremony.

As senior adviser Jennifer Franklin helped Garrett Alford tie his bow tie, Nichole Bailey assisted her classmate Heath Stewart adjust his Beta Club stole.

Robert Hand, who delivered the magna cum laude address, paced the room, contemplating his future, both short- and long-term.

"I'm planning to live for a very long time," he said. "Since I have braces, I plan to stay around here and go to Northwest Florida State College and get my associate's degree."

Robert said his ultimate goal is to study video game design at another university after he leaves NWFSC.

Dakota Presley, who offered the cum laude address, will join Robert at Northwest Florida State, where he wants to get a pre-med AA before heading to Florida A&M University's pharmacy school in Crestview.
