To the class of 16, all unsolicited advice is is usually wrong, my advice is don’t listen to any of it, including this!
Protect your town’s precious water resources and push for local control so your community will enjoy accessible clean water for generations to come. The future of this valley is in your hands and water is life!
Live life, work hard, play harder.
Go to be educated not indoctrinated. Think for yourselves and do the research then make up your own minds. Good luck!
Truly find your talents. You can look at the type of personality you have, that is best four your chosen career path, by seeking help from places like www.16personalities.com, reading books like “What Color is Your Parachute.” Don’t be afraid to be an entrepreneur, seeking help from the SBA, or Score, or strategically work with several successful business people. Aside from school and college, you can learn a lot on the Web alone. From www.toofamousquotes.com by the founder of the world’s biggest Catholic TV net: “Your plans, your projects, your dreams always have to be bigger than you, so God has room to operate ... get good ideas, extravagant ideas. Nothing is to much for the Lord to do.” — Mother Angelica
You are owed nothing.
Everything you’ve been taught is a lie.
Save your money.
Enjoy your life.
My advice for the graduates is to get out of this town. There are no jobs, and they will tax you to death. Their best bet would to go where there are the jobs, not just retail. Julie from Conway.
Start thinking right now about whether you want to make a lot of money or live in a friendly, close-knit community, because you can’t have both. The tightest communities are those where money is tight, too. Where money is abundant so is greed, and it’s every faction for itself. Just look at Conway.
My response would be in this fallen world, seek the Truth and do your best. This is Jim from Glen.
This is J.J. from Conway. When you get a job, the less you do, the less you do the less you get blamed for. But then you’re going to get blamed for not doing anything.
The only one thing that I have to say is the best advice to people graduating from Kennett High School to have is whatever you do, do not vote for any of the Democrats. You need to get out and do an honest day’s work. We don’t need the government taking care of you. It’s time some of you young kids get off your lazy you-know-whats and earn an honest day’s pay. Just because your parents are deadbeats doesn’t mean you need to be.
Never lose that twinkle in your eye. Never dismiss the beauty of a butterfly. And when you’re down and out, just belt out a loud version Kumbaya; that’ll put you right on the right track. And take a close look at your grandmother who walks with a cane, at your grandfather who can hardly hear. That’s going to be you in the future. It’ll be coming sooner than you ever imagine.
Don’t take any wooden nickels. If you break anything, don’t get hurt.
