Earlier this month, Matanzas High School Principal Jeff Reaves presented each member of the graduating class with a personal, handwritten letter before they walked across the stage to receive their diplomas, according to a report from The Daytona Beach News-Journal.

Reaves, who became a principal at the Palm Coast school four years ago when the graduating seniors were freshman, dug deep to make each letter unique, sifting through "yearbooks, student files and transcripts," as well as conversations and relationships, per NPR. He wrote the notes from March through graduation day.
