This past Friday I spoke to the Graduating Class of 2012 at Rapoport Academy in Waco, Texas. This dynamic institution has a record of 100% of its graduates going on to college. And I was honored by the invitation to speak to them on this special occasion. As a wife and mother of two children, I consider the preparation of tomorrow’s leaders one of society’s most important roles today. Whether that’s in the traditional classroom, through internships, at technical schools, in home schooling, at apprenticeships or any number of teaching methods. We have the unique and exciting responsibility to show the next generation the opportunities that exist ahead. As I looked at those remarkable students, I got a fantastic glimpse into that future. And the future looks bright. The graduates I spoke to displayed the optimism I embrace and the attitude I cannot let go of in my life. This ceremony is simply the next of many graduations they will celebrate. Because life, as I said, is full of graduations. We can choose to graduate up and graduate on to the next higher level in life and happiness with each step that we take. The Class of 2012 is on its way!
