Hello there students, faculty, members from the school panel, Superintendent, and parents. When I was first told which i was going to become the presenter for college graduation, I was defeat. I was conquer with pride and exhilaration, as I’m sure we all are today as we close this chapter on our lives, but most of all, I used to be overcome using a feeling.
A sense that I possess fooled you all in electing a Canadian to speak on this extremely important occasion. (Canadian Accent) I bet regarding now, you are all finally realizing just what it is you’ve done, right? But it’s too late, eh? I can’t be stopped…. (Drape Canadian flag more than top of podium) The rich history of Canada is definitely a long and interesting one. One that commences in the early years of. … (Trail off and present a moment of thought)” **remove flag” or better yet possess someone get it done for you. ) Seriously nevertheless, after I acquired over my personal initial reaction, I noticed that this was going to be a really hard undertaking.
Therefore i did what any teen-age boy might do within a similar condition. I consider my friends! We received two pieces of suggestions that not simply helped me while using situation available, but I feel will be the main source of determination for the next big step in living and exactly what follows afterwards. These two items of advice had been. (Hold up palms with numbers inked on them) No . you: Don’t Muck up!
No . a couple of: Be Funny! Obviously after these two gems of guidance, I was ready to write a gorgeous and highly effective speech that will remain collectively one of us till the afternoon we perish. Or at least till one of the genuine speakers arise here and says a thing meaningful. It’s hard to think that we’ll all be going out of this place finally. It really is even harder to believe that from now on, we’re going to basically have to fend for yourself.
I think that whether we realize it or not, we’ve gained a lot of the tools that we’ll ought to make it out there, the following at Welch. Personally, I’ve learned probably the most important communications of warring within these hallowed halls. I’ve found that it’s essential to walk the trail less traveled, because after a while, working down freshman in the crammed hallways merely loses a few of its appeal. I’ve learned that no matter how good an idea might appear at the time, at times a giant material dollar sundial that by no means sees direct sunlight, could possibly be an awful idea! I’ve learned the importance of sticking strong to your beliefs and not submitting to peer pressure, because we must be yourself, we have to believe with our individual mind! (look over at Mister.
Quinn) Is the fact good Quinn? Is, is the fact all right? Wow, ok. And no matter who’s doing it! Dammit! We will NOT CHEER! Finally, and probably most importantly, from the at any time vigilant and all knowing government, I’ve found that a girl’s belly button is a risky and highly effective thing which should be covered, feared, contained, retained from the world, for the great of all people everywhere. If you are able to comprehend any sort of concept out of what I’m saying today at all, it must be that lifestyle shouldn’t be studied so significantly.
When we’re all off in university, or functioning at our jobs, or perhaps still living off of each of our parents, and we look again on existence here at E-W, we’re never going to remember the tests we all aced, and also the classes we took, or the limitless nights before a computer display. But instead we’re likely to remember the good times we had, the celebrations, the fun we distributed, but primarily, we’ll bear in mind the people we knew. I had been once advised that you’re only as good as the people that you surround yourself with. Very well, there is not a higher caliber of individuals that I would rather surround me personally with then you definitely all near me today.
I was proud to state that I was a part of the Welch Class of 2006. Don’t ever forget where you originate from, and always keep in mind all of the great and one of a kind people that you shared the four years with, and once we all possibly hear each other once again for the 20-year re-union, there are going to be a number of surprises. Simply by that time Steve Guo being ruling the earth with an iron closed fist, Katherine Piercy will be the fresh reigning provide wrestling safe bet of the world. Jon Goodwin may have his very own morning talk show called “Wake up with a cup of Jon”, Kamiya Woodard will be the fresh host of “The Weakest Link” and rename that “Man!
You don’t know very well what you talking about! ” Eunice Song will be… very well, let’s boost the comfort, there really isn’t much hope for Eunice, (turn to Eunice) Eunice I guess you ought to have just attempted a little harder. The entire cheerleading squad will find a permanent position on the “Young and The Restless”, when the director is astonished to find that intense day drama comes surprisingly easy to them. Finally, as I’ve been saying for four years now, we’ll all be shaking the hand of your President in the United States…. Steve Darkish.
If you don’t remember a single word of what I’ve said up here today, just remember this: Jobs, properties, money, and success will all come and go, but the the one thing that no one can ever take away from you will be the good times and good friends you have had at E-W. And so in closing, My spouse and i only have one more thing to say, on request from Blair Hanberg, My spouse and i leave you all with “MEOW! ”
