Graduations are done in Newberry County.
To all our graduates from Whitmire, Newberry Academy, Newberry High School and Mid Carolina and your parents; congratulations and job well done.
Now you move on to the next station in life. But first many of you will be headed to that Senior Week trip.
Because of my profession and my unique understanding of the world and certain people that inhabit it. As a parent this was the longest week of my life.
Go have fun, but make good decisions because a poor decision has long lasting implications. Enjoy yourselves, but be aware of your surroundings.
Make memories, but make those memories that will be positive. Now that you have graduated and are full of all that advanced knowledge like calculus, remember something you learned in kindergarten.
Always travel with a buddy, watch both ways when crossing the street and don’t ever take anything or talk with strangers. And finally, don’t do anything that will embarrass your momma.
Be safe and God be with you.
