There are many people who have helped me survive high school. Most of them aren’t here right now, but you guys did also make some important contributions. There are skills you just can’t learn in high school, and you guys were there to prepare me for the real world. •

[Insert name] Thanks for shoving me out of bed every morning. Sometimes it hurt, but it was the only way to get me to school on time. • [Insert name] Thanks for always stocking the cupboards with sugary cereals so I’d have just enough energy to push through first period and still be able to nap in study hall. •

[Insert name] Thanks for doing my homework for me in elementary school, I’d probably still be in second grade if you hadn’t built that killer volcano for the science fair. • [Insert name] Without you I would have never come up with so many funny nicknames for my math teacher. All that wordplay really improved my SAT score! •

[Insert name] Without you I wouldn’t be able to use a microwave. Now I can head off to college knowing I’ll always be able to eat a warm meal. • [Insert name] Without you I’d be wearing dirty socks for the rest of my life. Nobody wants to hang out with a guy wearing smelly socks. Teachers and friends have taught me a lot over the last 18 years, but you guys are the ones who really tackled the tough stuff. Thanks to you, I’m ready to get as far away from you as possible and I head off to college. I hope that was your intention.

All of the time passed through my mind as I was speaking, the good and the bad times. The teachers who spent that extra time for me to understand the subject matter. The new friends that I met and we are still friends to this day. Middle school were new teachers and a different class load was Introduced to me, along with competitive sports and other activities.

This all prepared me for High School and the years flew by but the spirit, creative thinking, preparing me for life’s activities. Now I know that in other case for those going to college or straight to the work place. I know that I will never forget my high school’s days and am looking forward to seeing you all during the reunions decade in and decades out.

Thanks for setting my life in motion
