Graduation Speech: Follow Your Dreams - Good evening. I would like to begin my speech with a story by Gary Barnes that contains the same message that I want to speak about tonight. Once upon a time, there was a large mountainside, where an eagle's nest rested. The eagle's nest contained four large eagle eggs. One day an earthquake rocked the mountain causing one of the eggs to roll down the mountain to a chicken farm, located in the valley below. The chickens knew that they must protect and care for the eagle's egg, so an old hen volunteered to nurture and raise the large egg....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address] 572 words

Graduation Speech: Always Follow Your Dreams - I'd like to start out by saying that I am truly honored to speak here today and thank you to my class for choosing me. From the day I first stepped into the learning world of Mrs. Jacobson's kindergarten class spotting tons of building blocks and crayons until the day I walked out of Mr. Fulton's class with memories of burning gummy bears and rubber corks stuck in his ceiling, the majority of my life has been consumed by school. I thought it would never end. Do you know how long we've been in school....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address] 790 words

Graduation Speech - As you inhale the aggregate odor of your senior class for the last time, I’m sure there are many burning questions racing through your minds: “Will I find my place in the world?” If you’re lucky. “Am I really going to graduate a virgin?” Yeah, probably. “Who is that incredibly handsome young man addressing us, and how long do we have the privilege of listening to him?” Howdy, Andrew Gonzales here, and hopefully not long; I realize that your robes are making you sweat, your thongs are making you uncomfortable, and my use of the words “virgin” and “thongs” is making your parents sweaty and uncomfortable....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address] 891 words

Graduation Speech - Hi, my name is Mary Smith, and I want to welcome you all to the County High School graduation ceremony tonight. I came to County High School four years ago. As soon as I walked onto the campus I knew it was the right place for me. In fact if I were to describe CHS in one word it would be "family." Everyone here, students and staff, are the most understanding, supportive and encouraging group of people you could find. It is because of my "family" that I am graduating today. My journey to this day has been filled with many challenges....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address] 516 words

Graduation Speech - Today is both an end, and a beginning. After thirteen long years we have finally concluded our Kutztown education. It’s been a bumpy road, filled with defeats, victories, and surprises. We’ve learned a lot along the way, and not just science and math and English, although our teachers have made sure we picked up plenty of that too. Seeing the same people day after day has taught us what friendship is—and isn’t, and we’ve learned that life is not always fair. We’ve also developed some interesting skills, like how to dodge buckets—or freshman—in a crowded hallway on a rainy day....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address] 1138 words

Graduation Speech - T.S. Eliot once wrote, "What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from." Every landmark in our lives will end but there is always a beginning to an end. As each new path ends a new one begins. Graduation marks the end of a path but as it ends a new path begins. Life is an adventure. We started out by walking on a winding path as we entered the destination of kindergarten. As our lives ventured on down the winding path, we met new friends and new life experiences along the way....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address] 541 words
