“To the class of 2024, you have brought me memories for a lifetime,” Temple said. “Tonight is our last night as West Lincoln Bears [so] I would like to leave everyone with a verse … to remind us we’re in God’s hands: ‘For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future,’ Jeremiah 29:11.”
