Mr. Dotson, school board members, administrators, teachers, parents, family and especially the graduates in the class 2011: Good evening.
I first want to thank the class for allowing me to be the speaker this evening. I am honored and will attempt to keep it short and get you out of the heat.
Just 25 years ago I was in your seats. At that time, we had graduation in the auditorium, the overflow was in the library and both were extremely crowded. Lots of things have changed over the last 25.
