Good morning graduates, family, friends, faculty and our dear principal. For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Hamnah Nomani. It is with great pride that I participate in this event honoring the class of 2014. First of all, we would like to thank everyone for coming today and being a part of our celebration. There are so many people, we need to thank today. Without them, we would never be standing here and giving this speech. As the Malvern Junior Public School valedictorian, I’d like to give some personal thanks for some of those achievements now. First, of course, I would like to thank my parents for always being by my side and supporting me through thick and thin. You are the ones that have seen my struggle and are the ones that I owe all my accomplishments to. I would like to thank my classmates for helping me in and out of class, especially my best friends, Rebekah, Thanuesah, Maryam, and Thenuka, for being the reason why I love to come to school every day. I would like to thank my principal, Mr. Bradley for keeping our school environment friendly and safe. All my teachers have been great too but I need to send a special thank you to my amazing teacher Mr. Melchoirre. I have never had a more dedicated, hardworking and supportive teacher. He is always ready to help us no matter how long it takes and keeps our class fun. I would especially like to thank him for always having a smile on his face every day because seeing him enjoy spending time with us, makes me excited and interested in learning more. I would also like to thank both my French teachers, Madame Ho, who wasn’t with us this year because she had her cute little baby Nathan and Madame Levet for always being there for us. Yesterday my class was cleaning up and wrapping up this year’s stuff. We found so many worksheet and projects that brought up so many good memories from the school year. We…...

Grade 8’s, today is the day we have been waiting for since kindergarten. It seems like just yesterday the girls were in the play house having fake tea and biscuits while the boys were busy running around like Spiderman-wink and put hand to the side of mouth- (more like the Joker) trying to torment the girls. Forward 8 years, we sit on our couches eating a bag of Doritos chips and watching the newest episode of SpongeBob square pants with math homework Mr. Malo assigned us that day.

...How to Become Valedictorian * 201,747 views * 31 Editors * Updated 783 days ago Three Parts:Getting ReadyWorking HardStaying Centered Weird Al Yankovic. Kevin Spacey. Alicia Keys. Jodi Foster. What do all of these celebrities have in common? They were all valedictorians of their class. Though being valedictorian won't make you a supermodel or singer, it can set you on an impressive path that can lead you to succeed in your college career and in the world at large. All you need is to have mental toughness, endurance, and an unbeatable work ethic. So how do you do it? Just follow these steps. Ad Part 1 of 3: Getting Ready 1. 1 Start young. Unfortunately, in most cases, you can't just waltz into your high school on the first day of freshman year and decide to be valedictorian. You'll need to have proved yourself in middle school by taking the most rigorous math and English courses that your middle school had to offer. Some middle schools don't have tracking for their classes, but some do offer Honors courses as early as seventh or eighth grade. Being in these courses will set you on a path to honors courses in high school, so make sure you've laid the groundwork for this. * You can move up in English more easily, but once you're "locked" into a math track, it'll be harder to move ahead. For example, if you're in regular Algebra in 8th grade, you'll have to go to regular Geometry in 9th unless you've really proven yourself. Ad 2. 2 Learn......

...excellent in these areas but this is stereo typing the race. There are very smart black Americans in the world. At my school the Valedictorian was a black American girl. It is possible to prove yourself as to not be stereo typed. I do not agree that young black Americans are better at basketball because they practice continually, to prove to themselves that they can learn it. Basketball is fun where English for example is boring. What teenager, whether black or white do you know would chose to do English homework over practicing basketball. I know very few teenagers that would even consider the option. I do not feel that the black children because of the label “black” excel in basketball because they think they are supposed to be good at it. Black Americans can excel in any subject they choose to as long as they put their mind and energy into excelling in the subject. In conclusion I believe that black Americans have the burden of being stereo typed into the “black” category. I do however, as stated throughout my paper feel that black Americans use it as a crutch more often than not. I feel that black Americans allow the burden of being “black” to over shadow their abilities. They have to have the determination and will power to overcome the burden as well as the stereo type in order to succeed. Like I stated in this reflection the Valedictorian of my class was a “black” girl, the burden can be overcome with the will power and belief to do so....

Graduation Sheep

...Atienza Lee, and I am not your valedictorian. I am not the best, I am not the brightest, and I am here speaking to you right now because all the other summas backed out. I’m somehow supposed to talk to you about honor and excellence, so let me start with my story. When I was in first year, I almost got kicked out because of Chem 16. I wasn’t even bad at the class. I just had a habit of scribbling on my forearm during exams, which was—in hindsight, understandably — interpreted as cheating. After an unchecked exam and a lot of stress, I ended up with a diagnosis of Asperger’s syndrome. On the whole, it was a less than ideal way to get psychological support and an 1.00 in Chem 16, but I didn’t fail the class, I didn’t get dismissed from UP, and I didn’t jump off a bridge. I could have, but I didn’t. That might not sound a lot like honor and excellence to you, but that’s the point. The College of Science is made up of brilliant people. We can’t deny that. The College of Science is also made up of people who pretend to be engineering majors when questioned about their student numbers and people who tasted their Chem 16 unknown analysis samples out of desperation. We can’t deny that either. And we all answered our exams on bluebooks that might have varied in paper quality and might have shown different scores, but they all had the same message printed on the front: University of the Philippines, 1908, Bird, Honor, Excellence. Our valedictorian is Mao Leung. He has a......

When the student asks me, “Why are you late for your enrollment day?” And I just told him that the internet connection was not working so that I opened it late. While arranging my credentials he told me, “What course you want to take?” And I told him, “I wanted to take accountancy but I know that there is no slot available.” And he asks me, “What are your rank in your school?” I answered him, “I was the valedictorian of the class but we’re just 35 and it’s just 1/3 of the class is my foe for ranking.” “I know that there are slots in accountancy for the valedictorian that are still available, ask inside the OSFA, it’s just the first door you will see on this side.” And when I’m about to get my credentials he told me, “Where is your original copy of birth certificate?” I was shocked because I know my father put it there, “I know my father put it here.” I said while looking for it inside the envelope. I called my father and he told me that he removed it. And I ask the student, “Can I bring it back here tomorrow?” He answered, “Yes, of course.” I smiled at him and thanked him and entered the OSFA.

Dreams

...diligence, but then, it was also rewarding when closing time comes, and my parents put on those heavy medals on me. It is really satisfying to see my mom and dad so happy and proud because of my little achievements, that’s why, they acted as my source of motivation to strive harder and fulfil my dreams. I therefore graduated as the Class Valedictorian of the Maxingal Elementary School Batch 2008. Then, High School years came. That serious, peculiar, happy, crazy, fun and sometimes the most troubling part of a teen’s life! It’s when things are getting pretty much SERIOUS. I took my secondary education at the Lal-lo National High School as a Special Program in the Arts student, majoring in Media Arts. Well, it’s kind’a hard for me sometimes, because people have much higher expectations on me knowing that my mom is a teacher. More challenges, many ups and downs, a lot of pressure, great expectations and many more. But those things never blocked my way in achieving my goals. Excelling is never far from enjoying the things you really love. Things really turn out right when you just believe in yourself and trust God. I graduated as the Valedictorian of our Class and received some plaques and several awards. One of which is the UP-CAGAYANOS Ten Outstanding Cagayano Youth award (TOCY) given by the UP CAGAYANOS and UP Alumni Association of Cagayan North from UPLB, which for me is a one great achievement. That special day was really historic for I have prove myself and have......

After a particularly difficult meeting of the team Alex and Don stopped by the office of Ed to tell him that they believed Lee was not fair to Ed at the meeting and give him a little advice. It turns out that Lee behave the same way and with Don, but not with Alex, which says that Lee gave him complete freedom, supports it and praise. It turns out that the different treatment of Alex Lee is due to the fact that he has proven over the years and has earned his trust, but at the beginning of their relationship were just as tense. Something that Ed and Don deem impossible. According to Lee: Lee Coker has classified the work of regional managers. He divided into 3 groups - Valedictorian, mediocre and acceptable. He put Alex in the column Valedictorian, One entails mediocre, but Don is acceptable. According to this classification Lee changed the way in which they manage. When Ed starts second year in office by frequent contacts between Ed and Lee proved frustrating. Lee devoted more time to the work of Ed, but Ed did not seem to react - quite the contrary, he seems more occupied a defensive position and was not honest about the problems ahead with the line.

This is one of the unwanted baggages that I was carrying along my journey away from my parents. Despite all of these conundrums that life gave me still I was able to set my focus on reaching my dreams and goals in life. I made it as my inspiration to work harder and prove to the world that nothing can stop me from being the best. I was once a quiz bee champion in History and was given the chance to represent Silay City in the Regional Quiz Bee Championship at Iloilo City. I was the Supreme Student Government President of our school, Hinicayan Elementary School, and in God’s grace I graduated Valedictorian during my amateur years as a student. With so much hopes, satisfaction, love, trust In God almighty, and optimism we were able to survive and humbly started with nothing all over again. After I graduated in elementary my parents finally decided to take me. I never doubted nor questioned their decision but accepted it instead with all my heart, which was the best graduation gift I received from my parents. Yes, I had so many reasons to be happy: I can finally be with my parents whom I longed to see since then; play with my brothers and sisters; and of course to finally experience living in a modernized environment. But I can’t also help myself from being so scared about what will happen next, mainly in my studies. I must admit......

Do We Need Illegal Migrants?

...of unfairness. Immigration law needs immediate legislative consideration American citizens argue that the U.S borders aren’t secure enough to stop illegal immigrants. Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., a leading immigration-control advocate in Congress said “The reason we do not have secure borders is because of an insatiable demand for cheap labor.” Furthermore, the Democratic Party and Republican Party see illegal immigrants as source of voters and profitable cheap labor coming through unsecure borders. Some of the public claim that illegal migrants are criminal minded, since they entered the country illegally. Rep. Steve King, (R-Iowa), said to his opposition to immigration "Some of them are valedictorians, and their parents brought them in," King said. "For everyone who's a valedictorian, there's another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert." And he said "doesn't mean that there aren't groups of people in this country that I have sympathy for." He called them, those how are "undermining our culture and civilization." However, many studies showed illegal immigrants have a lower crime rate than native- born. The fiscal impact of all migrants, including illegal migrants is ongoing argument for long time. Illegal immigration has been created fiscal deficit for the federal government, which is not put a massive strain on the economy. The debate on welfare costs of......

Berta

...Tim Berta’s presentation on the bus wreck and how it has affected him and how he is getting through it with a positive attitude was very inspiring. Being a valedictorian and two-sport athlete in college, life never seemed so good. Tim was a humble guy who had qualities about him that would allow him to do what he wanted to do later in life. After the wreck, basically not being able to do anything that he use to be able to do must have been the hardest thing to stay positive in those situations. Personally I believe the slide show Tim presented with the four seasons will stick with me the most and have the most impact on my life in the future. For Tim to stay positive in the light of all setbacks and difficulties is truly amazing not only on a personal level but also a mental level as the tasks he had to go through and cope with. Going forward in my life I think I will take advantage of everything I have and no matter the situation to stay positive and keep encouraging my self throughout all my seasons whether the times are tough or great. I also think that people cannot be taken for granted in your life. Everyone needs to let the people they care about, know that they do everyday. You never know what may happen to someone on any given day. Tim Berta is truly an inspirational person who’s story will stick with me the rest of life of how in the light of a tragic event he was able to with the help of family and friends persevere, and with a positive and determined attitude......

This exemption gives Angelou an idea of how the rest of the ceremony will go. The principal welcomes & leads the group in a prayer with the Baptist priest, & introduces the guest speaker, white state representative Edward Donleavy. He gives a very uninspiring speech as he tells of the improvements set for the white high school’s sciences, arts & Training School’s sports facilities. Other than sports, Donleavy spoke very little of the success of the people of color in the school. The reminder of prejudice & segregation angers Angelou & the rest of her classmates. The next speaker, class valedictorian Henry Reed, bases his speech off of Hamlet’s “To Be or Not To Be” soliloquy. Following the speech, he turns towards the graduating class & begins to sing “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing. As the students & audience join in, the song takes on a new uplifting meaning for Angelou.
