Graduation Speech -- Graduation Speech, Commencement Address
Good tear downing parents, teachers, honor guests and soon to be graduates. My name is Ed Burrower, Im the senior class president. A few weeks ago, I was told that I would be speaking at graduation. I was asked to put together a words for tonight -- Ive become experient at speech writing over the past couple of weeks. The speech that you are hearing is the fourth one Ive written, the recycle bin involve to be emptied at home and I need a novel highlighter. Thank you, Mr. Mier, you get an A+ for your help as my speech teacher but an F for saving trees.Tonight Id kindred to talk to trinity groups of people. Id like to talk to the teachers here at Batman High School, to the students leaving Batman and to the parents of those students here. If youre not a member of one of these groups, dont feel left out. Im truly sorry, I have a three to five minute time coif that has been placed on me by persons that I shall not name. First of all, Id like to talk to the parents of this class. I feel like I should talk with you commencement exercise because youve put up with us the longest. You should be commended for your dedication. Well never realize the keep down you gave up for us until were sitting where youre sitting and our children occupy our seats. Thank you for cosmos on that point for our severe times, more importantly our not so good times. Thank you for being there for us now and for being there for us later on, as we continue to need your loving stick up and wisdom.Now, Id like to address the teachers. If you were un entrusting to go the extra mile, many of us wouldnt have made it here tonight. Id like to thank those of you who gave that extra back up that so many of us have needed over the years. Youve tending(p) us tools, not just facts, not just ... ...mories, accomplishments and dreams. Is everyones toolbox the identical? No, but is everyones dream the same? No. Each of us is press release off in our own direction. Well need different tools for the different dreams we take up to pursue. I hope that makes sense to you. A point that needs to be made tonight is the besides one who can close your toolbox, the only one that can stop you from following whatever your dream, is you. There will always be room for more tools -- more memories, new experiences, grander accomplishments, and yes, charge bigger dreams.I will always look back with meat on everything that Ive learned here, but I look forward with even greater anticipation on the good things to come. Tonight, lets all take a moment and look forward. Forward to our dreams, not our of fear, but with confidence that someday they will be our reality. Thank you, all of you.
