Congratulations, 2013 graduates! We wish you every success as you move your life ahead, and praise the efforts that brought you to this day. You now leave the shelter of school and the boundaries you have known, and ready yourself to explore the BIG world!
Your future is in good hands ... yours! What stands between you and your next success is the time and effort it will take you to get there.
Remember the truths you need to carry with you, in life, school, employment, interviews and friendships:
1. Be polite. Your behavior speaks of you.
2. Dress appropriately. Some only know you as you present yourself.
3. Be punctual. Allow time for the unexpected red light.
4. Shake hands.
5. Be honest.
6. Say THANK YOU!
Good luck on whatever path you decide to travel. If you never leave the shore, you won’t find your new harbor!
