Good evening Ladies, Gentlemen, Special Guests of Honor and of course, a special welcome to the graduating students of [insert year].

We face this evening with mixed feelings - pride and a sense of accomplishment for all that we have achieved, apprehension as we stand on the brink of a new chapter of our lives and excitement at the prospect of turning a new page, starting a new adventure and taking our first steps to achieving potentially amazing things.

New beginnings, new journeys and definitely new challenges to explore! You are sure to be dealing with a myriad of conflicting emotions and in the midst of all this.... you need to take a deep breath and believe, know , endure and then ultimately achieve.

Believe in yourself to the depths of your being. You have the ability, you have the skills, you have the education and you have the opportunities. But all of this alone is not enough. You have to know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that you have got what it takes to make a success of your life.

Believe always in the talents that you have nurtured over the years and continue to nurture them. There is no place for complacency. There is no room for apathy. Now is not the time to sit back and relax. You must continually strive to extend yourself even further - little by little every day, every week, every month and every year.

If you are able to do this... if you are able to believe ... then your spirit is free to grow beyond the restraints that your mind may create. Take heart when progress seems slow, work hard and play straight and the courage of your conviction will endure. Your goals will endure. Your work ethic will surmount obstacles in your way and ultimately your success will become a reality - something tangible and achievable.

On the eve of your graduation "may your actions inspire others to dream more; learn more; do more and become more!" - John Quincy Adams.

Congratulations to you one and all - you are the future that we will come to depend on!
