Senior Speeches 2019-2020

Vaughn Flowers

Now, whatever I do, such as basketball or any other activity, I know things may get tough, but I realize I just needed to take the additional time that I need because that is how my mind works and now I'm perfectly fine with that.

"After this speech, you probably think I’m obsessed with athletics (which is true) but one thing I learned was that it wasn’t just the sport itself that affected me, it was the aspect of a team or having a purpose. So whether that be a sports team, a choir, or a service-learning group, I encourage each person to invest some part of their time into an extracurricular because you never know the people or learning you'll gain from the experience."

"Knowing that human beings cannot always share common sorrows or joys is important. When we know that others cannot appreciate what you are going through or where you have been, we will have less disappointment for knowing that in the first place, also that is a reminder for all of us that we all have the ability to succeed on our own."

Despite all the pain and suffering, I would not take back this year if I could. It has helped define who I am and who I want to be. I still am working on my faith each and every day as well as my ability to let go of my painful past, and I am strengthening my ability to trust even more because I have now realized that I am bruised, but I will never be broken.

Through all of my volunteer work, I have learned that the gift of giving back to others is incredibly rewarding. Even our smallest acts of kindness or help or support can have an immense impact on others.

The friends made at RHP are some of those who deserve to be recognized for their patience and kindness as I finish out my high school years and in the time after. I thank you for being people that I can rely on in making me smile and for being understanding during a variety of situations.

Challenge the ideas that you’ve been taught in school. Ask why you should believe something, or ask why things have to be the way they are. We are all just clumps of stardust, united under the abstract definition of “life.” But we are the most self-aware clumps of stardust that may ever exist.

So, if you’re thinking of joining a club or a sport, try it. If your friends are joining a club, join them. Find new experiences that you can’t have at any other time in the world. What I recommend is that you make memories that last. In the end, that's all you’ll have from high school.
