Our 2014 & 2015 Graduates

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.

Dream big,

Know, though,

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,

Next year

The start of something new

Brings the hope of something great!

You will pass this way but once.

Do it right.
