Not only did these remarkable young women sparkle, but they shared some personality and words to live by via commentator Jenny Simpson. Some of that wisdom included:
Legacy Rachel Nufer’s simple personal motto, “Be yourself!” Lillie Baxter’s mantra is “Always victorious!” Jill Murphy’s life motto is “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter, don’t mind.” “Just be happy!” is the personal motto Abigail Fisher demonstrates. Crosby Gaeta says “Keep your standards and your heels high!” Reflecting her personal classic style, Alexandra Davis says “Dress shabbily and they remember the dress, dress impeccably and they remember the woman.” Ansley Avis says “It’s not that deep.” According to Francesca Scheitler “Everything happens for a reason.” “It’s better to travel well than to arrive,” says Sarah Burkholder. Siena Rohan also has a personal motto of “Everything happens for a reason.” Dailey Solomon’s personal motto is “Go for it! No matter how it ends, it was an experience.” Audrey State’s motto is “In the end only three things matter—how much you loved, how gently you lived and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” “Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you.” is the motto of Allison Smith. Katelyn Barney’s appropriate motto is “If you can’t find the sunshine, be the sunshine!” Erin Curley says “The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence.” Abby Stevens has a similar motto, “Better to be the one who smiled than the one who didn’t smile back.” Maia Rocklin says “Work hard and it will pay off in the long run.” Anna Bonner lives out her personal motto, “Be good to people. You will be remembered more for your kindness than the level of success you could possibly attain.” Halle Granger’s motto is the key to her success – “Put in the work, put in the time and soon you’ll be looking at all kinds of fine!” Kiki Neff says “Follow your heart but take your brain with you!” Drew Granger’s personal motto is “Cheers to the freaking weekend!” Haley Aud says “The strength of the effort is the measure of the result.” Claire Rainey says “Pursue humility.” Julia Rudolph’s personal motto is “Find yourself and be that!” Camryn Slosky’s motto is “Let your dreams run wild and your spirit run free,” Jackie Durnford says “Always fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose.” Nicole Frederick‘s personal motto is “Live life to the fullest.”
The Class of 2018 will be presented on Saturday, June 16 on the beautiful University of Denver campus.
