Many of you commented that the six speeches that I heard on Friday seemed excessive. Tonight's graduation had seven. This class consisted of approximately 230 students.
The speeches had a common theme and weren't excessively long. Suprisingly, the salutatorian didn't speak. The Valedictorian did as did the three other students who auditioned for the part.
The principal's speech was very moving by difficult to quote as he had many personal memories of the class that started at the high school the same year he did.
My favorite quote was spoken by the valedictorian who encouraged her classmates to step up onto the next rung of the ladder, to climb slowly, to comprehend deeply and to enjoy thoroughly.
Are you enjoying life throughly???
