Forest Grove High School Graduation

June 13, 2013

FGHS Grads 2013Congratulations to the Class of 2013.  I know a lot of you, and wish you all the best!

I was on the District website this morning and noticed a link to John Hayes’ commencement address so I clicked on it and read it.  At the point he spoke you were all getting pretty antsy to be done, so you probably didn’t listen very closely (congrats if you did– I don’t even remember who gave my high school commencement address) to what he had to say.  But I would encourage you to read it here.  His advice is SOLID, and as someone who has suffered lots of bruises, and failed innumerable times, all I can add is this:  The bruises are worth it.  It may take some time for you to see results or understand why, but trust the old guy here.  John Hayes is right.  As a good friend of mine, Chuck Aldrink, likes to say, “Don’t Retreat!”

Anyhow, that’s enough lecturing.  I wish you all the best of luck with whatever it is you are choosing to pursue! And if you are ever looking for some old guy advice, or want to talk about bruises, my door is always open.
