Commencement season is again upon us. Local ceremonies began last Friday with Feather River College. Plumas and Westwood charter schools hold their ceremonies later this week, and public high schools will hold theirs Friday, June 11.
Here we offer excerpts from highly regarded commencement speeches of the last few years.
To our graduates, congratulations and good luck.
“Forget that this task of planet-saving is not possible in the time required. Don’t be put off by people who know what is not possible. Do what needs to be done, and check to see if it was impossible only after you are done.”
