Class of 2009, You are our hope. So cherish this time in your life. Remember who you are. Because right now, you have it all: The gift of your imagination, the velocity of your dreams, the language of innoncence, and the passion of a beginner. Don’t lose it. Don’t let it evaporate or wear away. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “If you can imagine it, you can achieve it: if you can dream it, you can become it.
Today you are setting off on your next adventure. You are beginning, and what makes beginnings so thrilling is the unknown. Be guided by your passions. You have the foundation of your family. You have the strength of your community. And you have the power of your education. All of them are limitless, as are the heights you will reach in the days and years ahead.
