He was back home in northern Michigan on leave when the graduation ceremony was held for the Lighthouse School Class of Fall 2013 (pictured below). That gave Moyer a chance to attend the ceremony to show his support for the school and a new group of graduates.

“I wanted to come here not only to be proud of what I’ve accomplished but to show others that it doesn’t end here,” said Moyer. “What you’ve learned here carries on and shows throughout every single day and you can go great places.”

“I give it all the credit in the world,” said Moyer. “It taught me about what I could be, who I am, what it means to be in a community. It turned me in to a leader and brought me to where I am today.”
