Before I begin, I just want to take a moment to say thank you, to my amazing teachers and to my ceaselessly supportive parents and family. A special shoutout to my family members who have come from so far out of town to see me graduate today: You guys mean everything to me, and I certainly would not be here without your support- and I'm sure all of us out here tonight can express the same feelings towards all of our families. Could we have a round of applause for our families and supporters?
Good evening. My name is Zac Dunn, and before I begin I would just like to take a quick moment to thank all of you from coming out and sharing in this momentous day. I know I speak not only for myself but for every other graduate here when I say that in reaching today, not a single one of us has done it alone; we've all had the irreplaceable support of friends, faculty, and most importantly, family. So on a night that is so concentrated on us, the graduates, I would ask for a round of applause thanking everyone who helped us reach this moment.
I'd like to start off by mentioning a promise I made to my English teacher two years ago.
