Commencement 2017: Closing Remarks

June 14, 2017 by Guest Faculty Bloggers

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.

Commencement 2017: Opening Remarks

June 13, 2017 by Guest Faculty Bloggers

The Class of 2017 chose faculty member Jake Steward to deliver opening remarks at their graduation.

Good morning friends, family, and students. Welcome to Stoneleigh-Burnham school, and please join me in congratulating the class of 2017. They have worked hard (often), stayed focused (for the most part), and today they make us proud. They do have one final task to accomplish before we can name them graduates of Stoneleigh-Burnham school, but more on that in a moment.
