Ms. Gabriel’s & Ms. Hughes’ Senior Theology Scholars
This week, the seniors delivered their “Last Lecture” speeches in Theology class. Modeled after Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture, which became a successful book, the Class of 2017 shared with peers their answer to the question, “What wisdom would you share with your classmates if this were the last time you were going to see them?” Below are some insightful comments from our soon-to-be graduates:
Sean Bennett ’17: The things that you taught me were just the ones that I could fit in this 3 minute speech. I have learned something from every individual in this room. I hope that all of you have had the same experience of learning from each other. If not, the one thing I want you all to learn from me is that there is a lesson in every person that you meet in life.
Allen Fleureny ’17: I have been taught throughout my whole life that spreading love is something that is more valuable than spreading hatred. Love is what moves our country forward. We cannot spread anymore hatred because it will not get us anywhere.
Simon Jiang ’17: School is not only a place to learn knowledge but also a place for students to exchange their ideas and define their characters. We are all more than the way we talk, the way we look like and even our grades. High school has taught me to not judge people based on stereotypes.
Hayley Leger ’17: The happiness I feel when I get a new shirt or phone is nothing compared to the happiness I relive whenever I remember the long rides in Sharon’s truck, or accidentally punching Cali in the face freshman year. Even on my worst days, these experiences- no matter how embarrassing they are- stay with me.
Tessa Lewis ’17: There are no mistakes, only lessons we need to master. The idea of this is that we learn from everything and everyone, no matter the situation. You will be thrown into situations where you will learn from the experience and the people around you. Even if the situation is negative, we all learn from them no matter what the result is.
Jada Ross ’17: I think that this is what I have begun to realize: that we have no control over our future, yes we can study vigorously, join clubs, sports, and community service activities to help shape us to whom we want to be. And yes, we can work hard to for something we love earnestly, in hopes that one day we will achieve our goals. But sometimes God’s plan is better. Although we do not recognize it in the heat of the moment, we can look back at times things didn’t work the way we wanted and realize that God put us in a better situation.
