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?

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  
}
