Good evening faculty, staff, honored guests, and most importantly Williston Class of 2014. Thank you for having me as part of your senior dinner. It is truly an honor to be here and be back on campus. Believe it or not, when I come back I feel like I was just here yesterday. Campus always has this wonderfully familiar feel, like putting on your favorite pair of jeans.
When Mr. Pilgrim asked me to speak at the Senior Dinner, I said, “Of course.” And then immediately thought what could I possibly have to say to any of you 18-year-olds that you would need or even want to hear about.
I mentioned to my mother that I was deciding what I would share with you and she asked me who spoke at my senior dinner. What were their remarks and what did I think of them?
