awesome group that I've ever seen give me Matt you are beautiful I'll be brief again I'd like to say what an honor and a privilege it is for me to stand before you today honored guests faculty and staff parents grandparents family and loved ones and most importantly the rich community high school class of 2019 thank you today is the day for celebration we have accomplished something very important this is a day that you can be proud of your accomplishment and be proud of yourself however you need to recognize that there are others here today that are also very proud of you parents family that have nurtured you and loved you through these twelve years of school teachers that have work with you and cared for you so be humble and take time to thank them today your time in high school has gone by so very fast and you're gonna find it as you go through life the time only speeds up and it seems like yesterday that this group started the year I continue to be impressed by what you've accomplished and the legacy that you're gonna leave here at the ridge every one of you is in a unique individual and just I can't tell you how awesome you guys are as a group I just have a couple of thoughts that I think will be a value on your graduation day and last year's graduation I spoke about change and well that kind of holds true for class of 2019 also I could repeat the same points but I'm not gonna do that for you however I will say this there will be many milestones that are significant as you travel through life you will find that there are two kinds of events that you tend to never forget the first time that we do something and the last time that we do something today counts is both so cherish this moment this is truly your day it's your day to celebrate a major accomplishment a major milestone in your life so let's look at what the definition of celebrate is and see how it applies to what we're doing here tonight to perform publicly and with appropriate rights we're doing that to honor an occasion especially by solemn ceremonies we're doing that to hold up or play up for public notice we're doing that and to mark by festivities I'm sure those will continue late tonight over your high school career you've had many opportunities to grow and develop in all areas of your life the friends that you've made so celebrate them the experiences that you've had so celebrate them and the memories that you will carry with you for the rest of your life so take time to celebrate those because I'm I tell you the most beautiful things in life are not associated with money they are memories and moments if you don't celebrate those they will pass you by and this is what I believe an education is really all about memories and moments this is your final act and hi as a high school student so I asked you to take a deep breath look around for just a moment take time to look around soak this all in remember this moment because after all the celebration tonight tomorrow you get to look to the future that's right and when I was thinking about what tomorrow really means I ran across this and I think that it sums up what a tomorrow is so bear with me tomorrow is the most important thing in life because it comes to you at midnight and it's a clean slate tomorrow's perfect when it arrives and it puts you itself in your hands and it hopes that you've learned something from yesterday so I hope you look to tomorrow with that attitude let me give you a little advice infuse your life with action do not wait for it to happen make it happen make your future make your own hope embrace the future believe in the experiences that have molded you and prepared you to become the leaders that you are here today because you are ready to change the world I've encouraged you to think big and and take responsibility for your world and for my world because we believe in you let me end with this no dream is too big no challenge is too great nothing that you want for your future is beyond your reach I know that we will never forget you and all we ask is don't you ever forget it wants a boat thank you when I ask Miss Angela Clark to

would like to ask our our senior class president Kayla sand of all day to join me on stage for her remarks and then she's going to lead us in the alma mater [Applause] Oh good evening tonight marks a major milestone in our lives we begin our journey into adulthood after hard work and determination we're finally receiving our high school diploma [Applause] though it may only be a piece of paper that fits in your house in the coming years it represents something much more it's not symbolizes your great accomplishments and the dedication you have portrayed throughout the past 12 years each one of you should be proud of your standing today because it's not an easy journey we are a diverse class with a variety of interests races religions and sexual orientations our uniqueness is what sets us apart and what will allow us to flourish in the future as we come of age there's no doubt we'll face moments of insecurity and fear remember your goals and the hard work that you've endured over the past three few years trust in your capabilities and surround yourself with people that will push you to be the best version of yourself it's ok to feel lost and unsure what the next step is it's not normal for an 18 year old students have their life planned out and that's something you should be at peace with from the wise words of Steve Jobs he once said don't let others opinions drown your inner voice and most important have the courage to follow your heart and intuition they somehow already know what you truly want to become everything else is secondary I ask you to ponder over that with you as you discover your goals focus on personal growth and not on the opinions of people surrounding you whether you become a contractor boyar teacher or decided travel the world in the coming years each of you has something different to contribute to the community always remember your purpose and what you can get back to the world because soon enough our generation will be the world leaders and influencers as I stand here today before you I cannot forget to recognize the people who have shaped me into the young woman I am today to begin I would like to give a big shout out to all of my teachers throughout the past 12 years you've all taught me so much and impacted my life in different ways thank you to Arlene and Arianna you both have worked hard alongside me this year and have become to lifelong friends I can always rely on I can't wait to see what the future holds for the both of you chris'll and yadi mara thank you for all you have done for me the past five years for crying with me when I was sad and hoping me get through so many rough patches God put you two in my life for a reason and I couldn't be any more thankful you've become my family thank you to my older brother and sister Larry and Krista who paid the path for me here at Ridge in the end I know him the best in a Baldy mr.
