Graduates John Brown, left, and Sam Brychta, right, congratulate their classmates as the first row of graduates take the stage to receive their diplomas at the Victoria West High School graduation Friday night at Memorial Stadium. The class of 2012 is the second to graduate from the school after Memorial High School was separated into East and West high schools.


• Colors: Red, black and silver

• Flower: Fire and ice rose

• Song: "Tattoos On This Town" by Jason Aldean

• Motto: "Our lives are before us, our pasts are behind us, but our memories are forever with us."

What Advice would you give to incoming Warrior freshmen?

We asked them what advice they'd give incoming Warrior freshmen. Here's what they had to say:

"Don't try too hard to fit in, because people like you better as yourself."

Jordan Ivy, 17,

going to Baylor University

"Work hard and don't ever give up. If you fail, keep trying."

Heather Keller, 18,

going to Texas A&M University

"Don't put homework off to the last minute or else you'll be spending your last two weeks doing math."

Zach Hougen, 18,

going to Texas State University

"Have fun. It goes by too fast."

Patrick Amaro, 18,

going to Victoria College

The crowd of proud loved ones swarmed with excitement as ruby red robes engrossed the field at Memorial Stadium on Friday night.

The Victoria West High School Class of 2012 had arrived.

Principal Debbie Crick thanked the parents, principals and other supporters in the audience for helping the more than 320 grads reach this and the countless other milestones in their lives.

And to the students, she thanked them for their legacy.

"Thank you for that spectacular path you have created for our future Warriors," Crick said.

With all the high school wisdom they'd gained in four years, some West grads offered to make that path a little easier for their predecessors.
