An Open Note to Seniors


Life is a journey for all of us. I've done my best to give you a sense of 'home' and provide you with opportunities. I've also tried to prepare you for the harsh realities of life after high school. Even if we didn't always agree, I sincerely hope that you find success. Please keep in touch with me via Facebook - I'd love to see how you're doing and help celebrate your milestones.

Before you leave the band room for the last time, stop and take a look around for just one moment. These four walls have seen you at your worst and at your best, they had watched families created and families fall apart, they have seen love between two people and one sided crushes, they have seen your most joyous days and maybe melancholy ones, they have seen the person you were when you walked in for the first time and now have seen the person you are for the last time. And when you turn back around and walk through the halls for the never last time, know that those walls are silently weeping, and maybe you are too, because you both have realized that in order to go somewhere in life, you must leave home.

Remember that commencement means 'beginning'. You may be leaving South Carroll, but you are just beginning your life as an adult. Find your tribe but honor your roots. Don't hesitate to email or call me if there's ever anything I can do for you.
