First of all, I'd like to welcome all the parents, relatives and friends, on behalf of the senior class. It has been a long, hard road to graduation and I know your presence here is greatly appreciated. My job as salutatorian is to reminisce on our past here at County High, a past that reads like a script of a soap opera.

What an interesting four years it has been. I know I'm not alone when I think back to freshman year and remember the first time I stepped out onto our football field ... oh wait, never mind. And who could forget the very first time we stood in awe in the middle of our gymnasium on the Wildcat logo ... oh, scratch that, too. Seriously now, I know everyone remembers their first dip in the school swimming pool ... am I right?

To begin with, I don't think I could have ever imagined having such a diverse group of people as my classmates. In this small group of 25 students we have comedians, artists, intellectuals, athletes, actors, leaders, lovers and fighters. But there is one word that can be used to describe all of us collectively, and I think we all know what that word is ... scholars. I'm positive that Mrs. Cones will echo this sentiment. And after four years, I don't think any of us really know what a scholar is. This is only because our class demonstrates such a wide spectrum of the term scholar.

One of the hallmarks of our class is the incredible impact that we have had on the Tates Creek community. A good example of this is the relationship our class has with the underclassmen. In past years, the underclassmen have been all too happy to see the seniors leave. But this year's senior class has gone out of their way to be love, care for, and nurture the underclassmen. Don't get me started on Sean! His popularity among the freshmen has just soared! Underclassmen lovingly refer to Sean as evil. Brie has been a mentor to the whole junior class. She has shown them how to be classy and charismatic. Way to go, Brie! Seriously though, the bonds that this senior class has built with the other students are strong bonds that will continue even after graduation ... or so we hope.

Another aspect of the Tates Creek community that has influenced the senior class is the faculty.

Graduation Speech: It's Been Fun

- Hello students, faculty, members of the school board, Superintendent, and parents. When I was first told that I was going to be the speaker for graduation, I was overcome. I was overcome with pride and excitement, as I'm sure we all are today as we close this chapter on our lives, but most of all, I was overcome with a feeling. A feeling that I have fooled you all into electing a Canadian to speak on this very important occasion. (Canadian Accent) I bet about now, you are all finally realizing just what it is you've done, eh....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech: No Day But Today

- Mrs. Meke told me never to start a paper with a dictionary definition, but it only seemed fitting to site Merriam Webster today. Graduation is the act of acceptance of an academic degree or diploma. Never have Merriam and Webster been more off their mark. Graduation is much more than a simple ceremony, it is the culmination of 12 years of work, friendships, and the little moments that still make us smile. High school was more than its name leads you to believe. It wasn’t just school, it taught us a whole lot more than how to write a good essay, who laid the foundation for communism, and why we all should despise geometry proofs....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech

- To the County High School Class of 2012: As you sit in front of me, I know what most of you are thinking at the moment. There are those who are already pondering about what life without high school will be like; those who are debating whether or not to tell your crush tonight about your whispers of adoration you’ve secretly held for four years; some simply want to get out of that ungodly chair, get that thing that isn’t really a diploma but only tells you when to pick up the thing, and then be the first one on the green bus to the grad party — you know who you are....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech

- A wise person once said something to this effect: "Quotes are just another way of masking one's true feelings." I'd tell you the person who wrote it, but I can barely even remember it word for word. It's funny I crossed paths with this quote just days before I was informed I would be speaking at commencement. Someone or something, maybe a higher power, meant for this quote and I to meet. The irony of the whole situation is that the author's quote was turned into a quote, which is most likely the opposite of their intentions....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech: Live Your Dream

- The times before now have all been in preparation, preparation not only for this day but for the rest of our lives. We have all learned many lessons, which have helped to shape who we are. Starting way back in elementary school we began to discover that ... Riding the school bus went out of style by the fifth grade. That the most embarrassing part of the day was calling your teacher mom. That not eating the tuna burgers really wouldn't help to save the dolphins.

Graduation Speech: I Will Miss You All!

- It's only been two years here, and I have grown to love this school. It's funny because when my dad told me about Tates Creek High School (TC) I begged him not to make me go there. It just didn't sound interesting. I felt like I wouldn't belong and I figured that I wouldn't get along with any of the teachers, but boy was I wrong. I never thought that TC would have changed me, and get my life back on track. First of all, everyone is always complaining about the uniforms, but I love them. All I have to do is throw it on in the morning....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

- Well, this is it. These are the only seniors who were able to survive the culminating exhibition. If I had known that there would be this many open seats, I would have invited my third cousins from Norway. You know, it's funny. As I look around at the familiar faces in the student section, I am reminded about something. Our class, particularly the girls, have been very fashion-conscious over the last four years. Some even seem to be in competition with one another. Well girls, here we are on the most important day of your high school careers, and you're all wearing the same thing....   [tags: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address]

Graduation Speech : High School

- High school is supposed to be a one more step closer to college; it’s supposed to be preparing you for the future right. Wrong. My experience in high school was very different; I never quite fit in with anyone, the “friends” that I thought that I had used me for money. Let’s just say when I was a freshman I had a friend whom I knew from grade school, her name was Meghan Lawrence and she was the kind of person who I really believed I could tell her anything and she would keep it to herself. Once again I was proven wrong, I developed a crush on a boy and she knew that I had a crush on him; one morning before class both he and she went to the corner store, she thought it would be funny to te...   [tags: High school, English-language films, Middle school]

Graduation Speech : Middle School

- [Document subtitle] There comes a time in every modern day preteen’s life when they have to go through this traumatizing, dramatic, and awful experience called Middle School. It’s one of the more challenging transitions I’ve ever faced. We go through hormonal changes, class changes, freedom changes and overcome new experiences. Middle school is that place where they throw you to transition through that awkward stage. I find it to be absolute hell and a general pain. But it’s within all the hell, drama, trauma, pain and crap that we all take that prepare us for high school and lets us truly find ourselves....   [tags: Teacher, High school, College, Middle school]

As students, I'm sure we can all remember back to our favorite teacher, the one who inspired us and changed our lives forever. The name of my favorite teacher eludes me right now, but as a whole, there have been teachers who have given us the scholastic cattle prod in the backside. On behalf of the senior class, I'd like to extend a warm thank you to all the faculty members who have stimulated our minds, intentionally or unintentionally.

And now for the moment that the entire class has been waiting for. There is a senior out there who has not gotten enough credit for what she has done for the class. Her name is Connie Stevens. I say this with all seriousness and sincerity, this class would not be what it is without Connie. We have all heard her numerous complaints over the year about the fact that some students just don't get recognized, and her complaints are warranted. There is no one out there among the senior class who has not been affected by the whirlwind that is Connie. Her infectiously cheerful attitude and upbeat outlook have really added to the overall appeal that our senior class has. She may not get the recognition she deserves, but Connie is a voice for all those who feel that what they do goes unnoticed. I just want to take this time to tell Connie and all the other seniors that what you do and who you are has not gone unnoticed these four years. If you only knew how much you have touched other people's lives, you would realize what an important role you play in the Tates Creek community. When it is all said and done, the awards received and the academic acclaim heaved on the students does not matter. It is the smiles in the hall, the congratulatory hi-five and the comforting words that really important. The beautiful individual that you are, inside and out, determines your self worth. And as someone who prides himself on his observations, I'd like to say that this class has so much self worth, much more than the academic awards say and the scholarships show.

I'd like to close with a quote that pretty much sums up how every senior feels right now. It's a quote from the little novelty box in Robbie's Locker. The little voice that speaks for our entire class says such simple, yet deep words. "Excuse me, excuse me, can you let me out of here?"
