You can do it a few ways

$users = get-qaduser -searchbase "OU=Users_OU,DC=Domain,DC=Local"

$users = get-content c:\users.txt

$users = @(
"User1"
"User2"
"User3"
)

How would I add a line that notifies the user that the script completed?

The user running the script or the user that is having the password changed?

You can write it out to the console

$users | %{  
set-qaduser -Userpassword 'Test'  
Write-host "$($_) password was reset"
get-qaduser -samaccountname $_.samaccountname | Select samaccountname, passwordlastset | out-file c:\PwdChanged.txt -noclobber  
}
