Dear administrators, teachers, parents, beloved friends, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 8th grade graduation. It’s a pleasure to be standing in front of you today on this beautiful day to express the happiness we all feel.
As I stand before you all at the end of our senior year, giving this speech, let’s reminisce in some of our memorable pasts. Looking back, we’ve made many great memories in the midst of earning an
During my middle school years, I met so many new people, created bonds, and tried new things. I created memories with different people and through things I never would’ve expected myself doing. Throughout everything I did in middle school, they were the greatest memories ever. I treasure these times and will always. Looking back on middle school, I really appreciate the opportunities that were given to me.
Nine years ago, I never could have imagined I’d be writing this essay. I was a senior in high school, and, like the rest of my classmates, I was apprehensive about the future. Unlike my classmates, I felt like I had missed the proverbial “you need to get your life together” message. I watched my classmates apply to colleges, their majors already decided and their future careers mapped out. While I was an above average student, I felt I lacked the decisiveness my classmates seemed to have. I did not feel passionate about a career or even a field of study. I felt defective. This was compounded by the financial strain I knew attending college would have on my family. It seemed wasteful to try to “find my passion” at school while squandering
We all regret some of the choices we’ve had in the beginning of our high school journey. Since we can’t go back and change them, we can always give advice to the incoming freshman who may need our advice. Coming from middle school can be a hard transition because there
Good Morning and Welcome Distinguished Guests, family, and friends of our Graduating Class, it is an honor to have you join us this morning for such a wonderful occasion.
Valedictory Speech Written By Reid Durden After 13 years, it’s all come to an end. No more assignments, no more tests, no more uniform, no more school. To the majority of you, this fact probably still hasn’t really hit home yet, and to be honest, I don’t think that I’ve fully grasped this fact either. That soon, we will be stepping out of the relative safety of TSS and entering into a harsh, and unforgiving new world. But as we -the graduating class of 2016- step out into this new world, it is not as though TSS has not prepared us for this day.
Good evening students, I am pleased to be here today to help celebrate you on your last day as a middle schooler. As you prepare to move up to the High School, I encourage you to reflect on your experience at the Middle School and the lessons that have prepared
Valedictorians, the best in the class, can be a very crucial title that top high school students fight neck and neck for. Is this much competition and stress beneficial for students? Students who are academically inclined are already recognizable to the prestigious colleges, that are filled with academically inclined peers. A student who is not capable of taking all advanced and AP courses, even if they work twice as much as others do, throughout their entire high school career could never become valedictorian. Some students can achieve straight A’s in all AP and advanced courses, without ever cracking open a book, is it fair to name them over the kids who study every night and can barely pass? Valedictorians are just another way to recognize
Everything Counts Good evening, parents, faculty, and my dear fellow students. I’m Kashif Ali. First of all I would like to congratulate everyone of my fellow students on making past middle school. Wow! We made it to our graduation. Today, my speech will be about moving up since all of us are moving one step up to a crucial stage in our lives.
Class of 2015 “Ready, begin,” I said. Two words. I worked so hard for four years, spent a tremendous amount of hours doing homework, and participated in school activities and sports. I always tried to be the best person I could and my reward was just to say those two words.
Our graduation is our coming of age, our right of passage. As we walk across this stage we are writing the closing pages to our Chapter I and heading into the great unknown. It's kinda scary -- but hey, don't you cry, even though high school is over, the times we've shared and the friends we've made will never be lost. The clock is ticking, time is fleeting and nobody lives forever. But true friendship is something we can count on never dying. I hope wherever we go in life it will be happy and even if we all move to remote island countries we can all count on the memories and laugh at all the stupid things we did.
Fellow graduates, classmates,staff members, school board members, family and friends, it is my pleasure to be the speaker of the 2018 graduating class, how I got picked to give this speech I have no idea, but we are here and i’m here just to graduate just like
It was the day before graduation. Everyone is excited and anxious for the big day, while I’m panicking. I’ve been given the honor of being named the valedictorian for the class of 2009. I was on my way to middle school, and there was no better way to end my elementary school experience than with a prestigious accolade. This was an award I was thrilled to receive, but at the same time, one I wasn’t ready for. As a valedictorian, you are assigned several tasks before graduation. The most important is a written speech, which I didn’t have.
Graduation is an exciting time in a person’s life, especially a high school graduation. When I think of family and friends gathering together to celebrate a joyous occasion, I feel I accomplished my strongest goal. It never occurred to me that graduation would be the end of my youth and the start of adulthood. Graduating from high school was an influential event that gave me an altered outlook on my existence. Life before graduation, preparing for graduation day, and commencement day overwhelmed me for reality.
