Students Give Commencement Speeches in College & Career Readiness

Coach Kendrick’s College & Career Readiness class prepares senior students for graduation, further education, and finding a career. This past week, students were given the opportunity to give commencement speeches as if they were at the top of the graduating class at graduation.

The goal for each commencement speech was to include inspirational stories and quotes, memories from the past years at Amory High School, and witty humor to entice the audience. Each student worked extremely hard on their speeches, and some faced their fears of public speaking. This assignment truly gave the seniors an experience to grasp the idea of what graduation speeches are like.
