Heritage grads reminded to be authentic

Heritage High School's class of 2019 went off into the world with a reminder: you're not perfect.

In the age of social media, it's important to remember life isn't always as great as we portray it online, Principal Stacey Riendeau told the graduates.

“We struggle with the notion of selfie perfection,” Riendeau told the class, as they bopped beach balls and an inflatable flamingo around the University of Denver's Ritchie Center on May 25.

“Every one of you has talents, quirks and flaws,” Riendeau said. “Never sacrifice yourself for the selfie version of yourself.”

Graduates Erin Kopatich, Carson McLeod and Ana Sisneros performed the Rascal Flatts song “My Wish,” including a lyric that summed up the sentimental day:

“I hope you never look back, but you never forget/all the ones who love you in the place you left.”
