To the class of 2018 of Glen Rose High School:
I would like to thank all of you for the joy that you have brought to my life. I have watched you grow from a bunch of little six graders into a group of fine young adults. All of you have brought so much honor to GRHS in all that you have done. You have excelled in everything you have done: sports, band, UIL, choir, one-act play, FHA, and the homemaking department.
I cannot recall all of the good things that you have done to put the town of Glen Rose on the map. Be proud of what you have done and be sure to thank your parents and teachers for the way they have taught you to always do your best.
The things I will always remember about the class of 2018 is the way that you have treated me. Every time you see me it is “Hi, Mr. C,” a big smile or a handshake or a big hug. All of these acts will light up the life of everyone, and every time you light up someone else’s life you also make your life better.
All of you have taken a big step in life by getting out of high school. I know without a doubt that the world will be a better place because of what you will do.
I hope and pray that you will always treat others as you have treated me. Everyone needs to know that someone cares about them. If you would treat others like you do me the world would be a better place.
Remember the ten little words, “If it is to be it is up to me.” Please remember that Mr. C loves you and will hep you if I can. Thanks again for the joy you have brought to this old man’s life.
