Graduation day is finally here, and so now ends your high school career. Always remember the friends you hold dear, and look toward your future without any fear. This is the day you’ve been preparing for since the day you walked through that first classroom door. Now it’s time to say goodbye, and spread your wings - you're ready to fly. So shed a tear and share a smile, be sure to remember all the while, that although it may now be time to move on, today’s memories will last your whole life long.

It’s been a pleasure having peers like you! Thank you for trusting me in helping you, motivating you, encouraging you, advocating for you, and most importantly, reminding you that you have what it takes to become successful in life and to always keep your eyes on the sparrow. 

Always remember that our generation plays an important role in shaping tomorrow. We are the heads and not the tails. You can defeat the odds, chase the impossible, and do the unthinkable in any way. That’s how powerful we are, know that I’m rooting for each and every one of you in everything you do.”

Yours In Education,
