Message to grads
Graduation is a significant milestone in any person’s life. It is a time to celebrate accomplishment, and to mark a rite of passage onto the next stage of life.
There are few times in one’s life where so much seems possible, and with an education those possibilities are real.
A solid public education is one of the greatest gifts society can provide to our children. With knowledge comes independence and opportunity. Without education, life is much more difficult.
As you finish this level of schooling, I hope that you will become advocates for a quality, accessible public education system.
Congratulations on your graduation. Make the most of what has been given to you.
