Persevere, be yourself

Parrsboro -

PARRSBORO - Leadership is an open-minded aggressive attitude.

That was the message from guest speaker Don Allison to Parrsboro Regional High School's graduating class of 2009, as he addressed the group of 42 graduating students during ceremonies held at the school's gymnasium on June 26.

Allison encouraged the grads to take their next step thinking of numerous examples of how perseverance can lead to great accomplishments.

"Henry Ford said, "Whether you think you can, or whether you think you can't, you're right," Allison said.

Valedictorian Cassandra Morris had a few words to her fellow graduates, advising them that the future is now up to them.

"There will undoubtedly be successes and failures in all our lives, but what we already know is this, because we have made it this far and already experienced them," she said. "We have persevered and made it to graduation, and when we leave here tonight we will need to continue to persevere and overcome obstacles."
