At the class of 2008 graduation, West Ottawa High School Valedictorian Grooters had planned to quote 1 Corinthians 10:1-13 Eugene Peterson's "The Message," a paraphrase version of the Bible, and end by stating, "God usually puts things better than I do, and I thought this would be good for a few of us to hear."
School administrators told him to re-write the speech, which he eventually did.
Another Valedictorian, Andrew Webster, surprised administrators by reading several Bible passages during his speech.
Here are the speeches they gave at the June 8 graduation ceremony.
