Two hours before kickoff on Friday, the homecoming festivities were in full swing. Pop up games, music, and refreshments lined the Mountain Pointe parking lot. Students, dressed in the theme of the night, USA, milled around waiting for the gates to open.
I have been honored with the opportunity to welcome each and every one of you to the graduation of the class of 2014. At the beginning of this school year, a group called POS MEGA united under one question: what makes a person great? Is it what one says that makes one great? Is it what one once did? Or what one believes and thinks? Or the ability to avoid failure?
Hello class of 2014 and congratulations! Now, for some of you, this may be the first graduation commencement speech you have attended; but, I’m sure many of you have heard others, filled with the clichés that are common for this occasion. Well I am honored to speak tonight and my address will also be filled with clichés. In order to make this a little less painful, I’d like you all to participate in a little game of BINGO. If all students could mentally mark off the clichés on your BINGO card — Version A, B, or C — while those in the audience play along on their smart phones at phs.2014.com, hopefully we can find a winning group.
When you begin your workday you have two individuals who are competing to be your personal career coach for the day. The first, whose name is Donald (of the Trump variety) is dressed in a sleek, dark, and expensive suit and is waiting to take charge. Don carries all of the latest technology with everything organized, easily accessible, and he responds to emails, texts, and phone calls instantly. Don is very opinionated about everything relating to business and has the right to be since his experience and resume are perfect. Don is everything corporate America desires. Donald is going places!
