Jayla Clark, R.A. Long senior, gave a “Looking Back” speech to reminisce with her classmates, most of whom she said she grew up with during her schooling.
“We’ve become aspiring business people and we’ve become future leaders,” Clark said. “And we’ve all had the pleasure of seeing each other grow into these things.”
Cardin Chung, also from R.A. Long, juxtaposed with a “Looking Forward” speech that focused on the fact that many seniors will have hard choices to make in their lives and the potential to enact change.
“None of us are going to live perfect lives,” Chung told his peers. “We’re going to make a million mistakes, but we’re going to learn from that and keep striving to make better choices for ourselves whether that means changing our path or moving forward.”
R.A. Long Principal Rich Reeves told the seniors he was proud of them for weathering the challenges that came with the COVID-19 pandemic. He advised the seniors to push forward and work hard in whatever they chose to do.
“Your resilience is mind-blowing and your experience has shaped who you are,” Reeves said.
