Royalton-Hartland's graduation ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday outside the high school. Yours truly will be the keynote speaker. Instead of focusing on the future as many commencement speakers do, I will look at the past and present and discuss how Roy-Hart and small town living have given the 113 graduates incredible academic and life skills and a better understanding of the human condition that could not be achieved in larger schools and communities. My challenge to the graduates will be "never forget who you are or where you came from."
