Board of Education Address - Stacey Weisberg
Good evening parents, faculty, administration and graduates. My name is Stacey Weisberg and I am a member of the Board of Education. Congratulations to all of you on this momentous occasion.
I would like to briefly share with you a few words of advice as you begin the next chapter in your lives.
Never be afraid to fail. Failure is not final. Rather, it is a lesson. Thomas Edison once said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work. The most successful people I know are the ones who have the courage to act boldly, and when they fail, they dust themselves off, learn from their mistakes and try again. They persist until they have reached their goals and never give up.
I wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavors.
And remember, the tree of life beckons
So, climb high, high, higher…
