Friends, family, teachers, mentors and fellow graduates, I want to begin by thanking you all for attending our graduation ceremony for the class of 2019.

We could not have made it this far without your persistent dedication, time and effort which have shaped us into the eager and self-driven young adults sitting here today.

On behalf of the class of 2019, I would like to thank the teachers, counselors and administrators for their dedication to our success, for going above and beyond to best prepare us for the future, even if it meant taking extra time out of their day.

Thank you for seeing us as not just another line in the grade book, but as people.
