Congrats to the RMSS class of 2011!

I was given the honour earlier today of speaking to my high school alma mater’s 2011 graduating class.  It was great visiting my old high school, Roland Michener Secondary School in South Porcupine, ON.  For those outside of Canada, it’s about a nine hour drive north of Toronto – and also the birthplace of Shania Twain as well!

I prepared a five-minute speech filled with as many cliched words of advice and inspiration as possible – all did in a rapid-fire manner that took only about one minute.  I then encouraged the grads to follow one piece of advice: travel.  Travel as much as possible to garner inspiration and education from different people, cultures and customs.

Thanks to Miss Drummond and Mr. Mulroney for inviting me to take part in the event and best of luck to all graduates of RMSS – and all high schools everywhere!
