When Drew asked me to give this year’s commencement address, it made me realize that it was almost exactly 45 years ago that I graduated from Fairfield Prep. At the time, I couldn’t imagine what I would be doing in two years, much less that I would actually be speaking at my daughter’s commencement so many years later.
I know you’ve often heard that time flies by so quickly, but please believe me that this is so true. So try and cherish today and remember what a monumental and proud moment this is for you.
You have accomplished a great deal by graduating today…this is an important milestone for you as you embark on the next phase of your life. How exciting is that? Your opportunities are limitless, and you have a whole team who is rooting for you to realize your dreams and aspirations.
