Yadera Ukaigwe Valedictorian, Class of 2017
We are leaving today, finally departing this training ground to put what we have learnt here into practice. To the Class of 2017, as we are about to independently face life outside this place, let us be ‘wise as serpents and harmless as doves’. Not only that, let us be bold to stand for what we know is right.
Let us know that there is more to being great than just attending a great school just as greatness, itself, depends on us and not on the school that we attend. So, as we move forward in life, let us be guided by principles that will lead us to where we want to be in life.
Most importantly, let us be proactive in our decisions even as we enjoy our, seemingly, new found freedom.
