Hello Garth Webb,s first full graduating class of 2016 I’m Sebastian in case any of you forgot or still just didn 't know. Four years ago, I first entered Garth Webb; it seems like it has been just was just yesterday I wheeled into the school—did you guys get taller or is just me? I have thought long and hard about my journey and what I ought to say to you guys and while writing this I realized I still hate public speaking even more so this should be interesting, thanks Mrs. McLeod. I gotta be honest and say that I was pretty nervous about giving a speech; I kept thinking: What if I was like Taylor Swift and someone came up and interrupted like Kanye did back in 2009 but instead they said “Sorry I 'm gonna let you finish but someone
I wanted them to be proud of me. Instead, they were far too distracted with the utter chaos that dominated the Ceremony to enjoy the student’s accomplishments. Not only were the speakers still practicing the program’s activities while the parents were arriving, but they actually began the introduction while the setup crew scrambled to finish piecing the stage together. The bangs and clangs of the last minute preparations were only outmatched by the rapid fire inductee name announcements, that resulted in a bumbling, befuddled,
On June 1, 2012, David McCullough Jr. delivered a commencement speech to the graduating class of Wellesley High School. The speech was presented in Wellesley, Massachusetts among the graduates, close family, and friends. McCullough may not be a professional public speaker, but he is a well-known and respected English teacher at Wellesley High. In his speech McCullough made the valid point that graduation is the beginning of life and the long road ahead. The message from that day became known as the “You Are Not Special” speech, and is found to be controversial but memorable.
At the conclusion of their, words the names of the graduates began to flow. As I heard my teacher call my name I began to walk. Before he could even finish saying my name I began to hear shouts and screams from the audience from my friends and family and tears began to run down my face. I had finally done
I had never been more proud of myself knowing that I am so much stronger than I had ever thought. After that week I found a job, started exploring colleges, and made new friends for the upcoming year. That one day changed my perspective on what is ahead for me and who I can be. That is why I aspire to attend the University of Chapel Hill to prove to myself that I am not average, but, I am exceptional and deserve to be at an exceptional
This graduation has inspired my present identity. It also motivates me to stop assaults just thinking no parents were there, the doors were wide opened, and the music was so loud no one would hear. Anyone could have walked in and take kids. Not all kids luckily graduate.
I had run for the position, believing I would do what was best for my class. In the beginning, I was excited having conjured a plethora of ideas, ready to enact and perform them all. The very first meeting I walked in chest puffed out and a smile on my face. The class sponsor started the meeting, asking if any of us had any ideas. Open Season had begun!
The tone throughout this speech is obvious, inspirational. The audience have just conquered a huge stepping stone in their lives, graduating college. This step allows them to plan their futures further and begin their careers. Smith uses an anecdote by sharing a story of his dad, who was the
He gave me a small smile, giving me the courage I needed to get myself to the stage. As I stood in front of the podium I looked over the crowd. Everyone’s eyes were on me. My heart started pounding in my ear, words escaping my mind. All I could do was wonder how I had ended up here.
Speech for NJHS Induction Ceremony Good evening students, faculty, and family members! Thank you, Mrs. Reece and Principal King, for inviting me to this year’s National Junior Honor Society induction ceremony. Students, tonight we honor your achievements in the areas of Scholarship, Citizenship, Responsibility, Community Service, Character, and Leadership as we recognize and celebrate the choices, and at times the sacrifices, you have made. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "The reward of a thing well done is to have done it."
While we have grown together as a pledge class, we have learned that although the pledge process requires commitment and a lot of extra time, it has built us significantly. Our time-management skills have improved as a necessity in the context of our own maturity. Through these moments I am proud to justify that we will soon be members of an organization larger than us. This bestowal placed upon us is an outstanding privilege we shall not take for granted and celebrate respectfully. I am honored to say you have all changed me for the better.
Counting down the list from number 20 to eventual number 1, my heart raced as they called out the names. It was 8th grade and the rankings were out. This may seem like a rather pretentious achievement but when they called out the name “Andrea Campos” as the valedictorian of Copiague middle school. My heart skipped a beat and tears streamed down my face. Hearing my parents brag about me to their friends made me feel like my accomplishment was their achievement as well.

Graduating High School A day I will never forget was the day that I graduated high school. All the emotions were overwhelming and hard to handle sometimes. It was hard to accept that one of the biggest chapters in my life was about to be over and I was about to start an even bigger one.
