2011 Graduation #3

There was a threat of rain today and I was concerned that commencement might be forced indoors.  So I was delighted when the threat passed and I was again able to attend an outside graduation.

Outside graduations are the best.

I saw just over 200 students graduate, listened to 7 speeches and took this awesome picture of the kids tossing their caps. 

My favorite quote of the evening was spoken by the superintendent and I think you will be able to figure out why.  It's not Dr. Seuss, but it's close.

"The turtle is a great animal.  In order for it to move, it has to stick its neck out. 
Don't hid in a shell.  Meet the challenges of your life head on."

Are you meeting the challenges of your life head on?

I'm not only trying to meet them, I'm trying to run them over like a steam roller!
