“You’ll never know your limits until you find them,” said Justin Angle, University of Montana business professor. “And they’re generally well beyond what you expect.”

It’s a message Angle wanted to drive home to Hellgate High School’s 308 seniors walking across the stage at the Adams Center. Angle was the keynote speaker for one of three Missoula County Public Schools graduation ceremonies hosted at the Adam’s Center on Saturday. 

Hellgate High School graduates throw their caps into the air marking the completion of their high school education on Saturday, June 1.

MCPS staff, along with families and friends of graduates, watched Hellgate, Big Sky and Sentinel High School students accept their diplomas.  

Angle encouraged Hellgate’s fresh graduates to build skills that will continue to propel them upwind, like taking hard classes, learning how to deal with conflict and being curious as they navigate the world. Staying upwind means staying on top of getting things done, Angle said, but also trying things you’re not sure you can do.
