Let them speak

May 17, 2007

Eudora High School's graduating class of 2007 produced numerous outstanding men and women. Our community has a great deal to be proud of and celebrate as we commence these students into the world. Six students will be graduating with the distinction of being ranked first in their class. Of those six students, four students asked to speak at graduation, which has been tradition at EHS commencement for many years.

Of those four students, only two are being allowed to speak because of a time constraint to keep the ceremony to one hour.

It is a shame that we let the busyness of our lives take away from two outstanding students who earned that privilege.

I am sorry that the administration of EHS didn't allow the community the benefit of hearing what these fine students had to say.
