For those of you who are about
to graduate we would ask you to...
Learn from the mistakes and
successes of others
Build upon that which history
has show to be good and honest
Be not afraid of the future,
press on, press on
Seek vocations that would
enrich and uplift your fellowman
Defend our freedoms,
decry bondage of any kind
Learn to feed men's minds and
hearts as well as their stomachs.
Set high standards and gracious
examples for others to follow.
And remember, every day of our
lives is a day of commencement
(First published May 23, 2013)
We are well aware that commencements
2020 have been overrun by the worldwide
coronavirus pandemic, but you certainly
will have a tale to tell your grandchildren.
