Graduates Lifting Mortarboards

MLA message to graduatesPosted: July 1, 2012

There is always tremendous excitement that comes with graduation.  There is a sense of accomplishment, a sense of new doors opening, but also a sense of friends heading off into different directions.  These are things we think about as we attend graduation ceremonies.

The years ahead will offer very exciting opportunities.  Past graduates from our schools have gone on to accomplish a great deal in academics, business, sports and the arts.  And this year’s graduates will also have a range of possibilities to pursue.  But no accomplishment comes without effort.

As you prepare for the life ahead of you, it is important that you remember to think of others.  You will find that some of your most satisfying moments in life will be in helping others.  It may be raising a family, through your profession, or through volunteer community service, but what you do for others can will improve your quality of life.

I hope that you will enjoy your graduation celebrations, and I wish you all the best in the future

Norm Macdonald MLA,


Columbia River – Revelstoke
