Graduation Speech: An Amazing Year! :: Graduation Speech, Commencement Address
To be completely honest, at the end of my junior family, I felt ready to be up here. I watched a lot of my friends go through their senior year and felt completely prepared to move on. I could hardly stand the thought of another year at County High School, in what I thought would be stagnant water. At that point in my life, I had no idea how much I had left to learn and how much one more year at County High would mean. It ended up being, collectively, one of the most amazing experiences I hire even had. From the very beginning, it was not what I expected. Boys tennis, never a very strong team at County High, surprised me, and alone was an unforgettable experience. I never envisioned myself playing in the league finals, I was as surprised as anyone, and when I missed out on state, I was as disappoint as anyone. Other activities left their mark finally being involved in art, finally playing with the jazz band, finally being completely do with pit orchestra. I also never imagined a thing called knowledge bowl could be so much fun. Each activity, in itself, built a memory I will forever hold. More even than the activities, the people I became close to this year have grown to be cornerstones of who Ive become. Most of my good friends graduated nett year and I thought I would be lost without them. The situation ended up being the exact opposite, however, and I now cannot imagine what I would be like had I never become close to my good friends now. I have watched myself, and those around me become better, stronger people. I now can check out that I would not give up a second of my time here for anything. The teachers here, the other students, the opportunities and the experiences have made me what I am today.
