The Class of 2017 chose College Counselor Lauren Cunniffe to deliver closing remarks at their graduation.
Thank you, class of 2017, for this honor. I’ve heard that pausing during speeches helps to command the audience’s attention - to be honest, in my case, pausing means I’m trying to calm my racing heart and catch my breath. I did not have the benefit of PB’s rhetoric class. The fact that I’m standing here clutching the podium shows how much respect and affection I have for all of you.
