Graduation Speech by Michelle Bentley

To The Future You Go!



Tonight is your night.

You're off to new places

And that's out of sight!


You have the tools to guide you

To go as far as you can.

You're future is unlimited

As a woman or a man.


You have choices to make

About where to work, play, and live.

And you have unlimited options.

You have so much love to give.


The door is open now.

You just have to walk through.

One foot in front of the other

Is all you have to do.


Walk towards any opportunity

That may chance to come you way,

But remember life is always better

If you take it day by day!


Always think before you speak.

Take one day at a time.

Work hard and play harder

And you will be just fine.


So congratulations to MacKenzie,

To Jerrick and to Zach!

Pick good go-to people.

They'll always have your back!


Congrats to "Uncle" Saloma,

Cierra, Brian, and Garrett.  

Some days will be difficult.

We know that you can bear it.


To Jon and to Charlie

We say congratulations!

Go out into the world tonight 

And enjoy your summer vacations!


We will all miss seeing your smiles,

Your laughter, and your jokes.

Thanks to you for all the years

And thanks to all your folks1


But always remember...


Let a smile be your umbrella,

Let your conscience guide your way.

And may every hour remind you

That EVERY day is your day!


And will you succeed?

You will indeed!


Oh, the places that you go now,

The things you'll see and do

Are choices you can make now.

The rest is up to YOU!


Congratulations Happy Hearts Class of 2023!
