Senior Speeches

JC Finnucan

I have lived in Ohio, California, and Tokyo, Japan. I’ve traveled all over the world. I’ve had great friends and a family that I can count on until the day I die. I’ve got a nice car and a great place to call home. I’ve even got a great education. I’ve had many challenges, and I’ve overcome them. I really am incredibly fortunate, and just as grateful.

"The best thing I ever did was ask for help along the way. I am Shaun Magid and I am one of the millions of faces of depression. I’m not saying this for sympathy, but for others to hear my story and to know that it's ok to struggle. I can't thank my mom enough for her guided assistance through this mission called life."

" Our job is to make sure we pick ourselves up from our low points and move on while learning from the experiences. Coming full circle, small problems that stress us out most likely don’t matter in the end, so even if things aren’t in your favor right now or you are just having a rough day, remember to take a step back and feel grateful for where you’re at in life and for the people around you."

Whether you are a great cook or not, everyone can find something to contribute to the cooking process -- even if it means you are just standing in the kitchen and keeping the cooks company. As I begin my next chapter in college, I won’t be afraid to meet new people and share my love of cooking. My passion for cooking will always help me connect with others around the world using the universal language of food.

Thanks to my supportive teachers and friends, slowly I was able to start accomplishing this task. If I was anywhere else, I would probably have built twice as many boxes that I have now, and I'm forver grateful that this isn’t the case. My journey isn’t over yet, but I’m glad I have gained experiences that helped me shape who I am today. I don’t know how long it will take, but I know, that my time here was not a waste.

"I truly understand why practice is necessary. It is something that can help us strive to achieve the goals that we have set for ourselves. Actions must match one’s desires."

Ian Johnson

" I’ve learned to step out of your comfort zone and try something new. That is the best way to improve. For example, my band has opened for other bands that have been around for 35 years with fan bases way larger than ours. It was quite intimidating playing for an audience primarily of adults and to look out into the group and see the members of older bands we respect. But stepping out of your comfort zone forces you to grow."

Coming to RHP has allowed me to harness that confidence given to me by my parents and express myself in many new ways. This was through writing creative journals, designing a yearbook, and even spending a week of my summer working for Cameron in the office. Not only that but RHP has given me a family. I know that everyone tends to say that but really, RHP has provided me with a safe environment where I'm not afraid to be myself and make friends that I will keep for forever.

It is always good to be ready for anything. In the short term, things rarely go according to plan. Being prepared for a situation that is unexpected is a vital skill to have.

"From encountering setbacks in my life, I’ve learned the most important thing you can do is continue playing. Do not allow a setback to completely stop you on your path to achieving your goals. Surround yourself with people who will pick you up when you fall and push you to be successful."
