Hail to Our Graduates!
Hail to the graduate!
Looking great and feeling fit,
Oh, so proud and full of it!
If there were a time to dare,
To make a difference
To embark on something worth doing
It is now.
You owe it to yourself
To make your days count,
Have fun. Dig deep. S-t-r-e-t-c-h.
That things worth doing seldom come easy,
Because with an idea,
Determination and the right tools,
You can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect
And let your heart guide you.
Believe in your incredible power
Of doing something that makes a difference,
The start of something new
Brings the hope of something great!
You will pass this way but once.
Do it right.
