My Graduation Welcome Address
Our university President, Br. Narciso Jun Erquiza Jr. FSC, Chancellor, Mr. Christopher Polanco, BED Principal, Ms. Marie Allison Parpan, HS Vice-Principal, Mrs. Myrna Manalo, DLSAU Alumni Association Inc. President, Capt. Sheryl Nolasco, administrators, teachers, parents, my fellow graduates, friends, ladies and gentlemen, a pleasant afternoon!
Today we celebrate the graduation of 240 students, who committed to and succeeded in studying here in De La Salle Araneta University.
May this day be memorable and be a starting point as we enter a new chapter of our lives. May I ask my fellow students to set our minds on this once in a life time event, a small part of our journey, a precious one at that. Let us make our dear parents proud as we offer the fruit of their sacrifices, a symbol of our hard work and patience for the past 4 years, our diplomas. Let us cherish this important day with our teachers, mentors, parents, and friends.
Most certainly, the support of family, friends and loved ones has contributed immensely to our success. They have provided and will continue to provide the inspiration and motivation that will take us further for years to come. I thank all of you.
is a good reason they call these ceremonies ‘commencement exercises’. Graduation is not the end; it’s the beginning.
My fellow graduates, you are educated. Your certification is in your degree. You may think of it as the ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your ticket to change the world.
Congratulations and welcome to the 26th Commencement Exercise! God blesses us all!
