AS YOU RECEIVE YOUR DIPLOMA I Reginald Holmes When you step forward to receive That all-important scroll, It means you are one step nearer To your long-awaited goal; And yet you'll never say good-bye To teachers, books, and schools. Life will give you new assignments, Harder lessons, stricter rules. But you'll find that your diploma Will open wide the door Of those golden opportunities You've been waiting to explore. While you gather up your memories At the end of that long aisle, You will say good-bye to classmates With a handclasp and a smile. May the knowledge you have gathered Keep you on the winning side As you proudly face the future With confidence and pride. There are obviously two educations. One should teach us how to make a living, and the other should teach us how to live. James Truslow Adams N
