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
