Graduating from high school may be the end of a journey, but it’s far from the end of the road.
MLK Prep class of 2022, you’ve persevered through so many obstacles like transitioning to virtual learning because of COVID-19 and returning to the classroom while enduring the many changes that COVID-19 forced on us all.
There’s one word that describes the class of 2022, strong!
Your strength to endure to the finish line has inspired us all.
As you enter your next journey, always remember that your FCS and MLK Prep family has your back. Once a Ram, always a Ram.
Team FCS has words of wisdom for seniors as they embark on something new.
Mr. Cooper, MLK Prep’s Assistant Principal, words of advice to seniors are John Wooden’s quote. “Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation; Your character is what you REALLY are, while your reputation is merely what other people THINK you are.”
“Be flexible,” advised Brett Lawson, FCS Executive Director. “Life is going to throw you many curves. I know very few people who love their job and do the same job they thought they would be doing when they started. You may end up with opportunities you never imagined. Do not be afraid to jump out in faith and say “Yes” when that door opens. Tandem to that is that you should always be prepared. Prepare by seeking out things that interest you and learning about them. What you will discover is that doors will open in exactly those areas. If you are preparing for something you love, your path will naturally open in that direction.”
“Practice doesn’t make perfect. In order to be perfect you must practice in life and through everything you do,” said Jessica Lindsey. “I love y’all and be the best at what ever you set your mind to that is positive.”
“To the graduating class of 2022, I’m thankful to have been able to work with many of you this year,” said Monica Bester. “I’m proud of the growth you’ve made and wish you nothing but the best as you enter the world post-graduation. May you be blessed and go after all of your dreams. Always remember “no” is not rejection, but protection and guidance to find a new route. Go be great and never take no as a final answer!”
“I wish you all the best in your next stage of life,” said Tina Pearson. “Believe that you can be and do whatever you want in life and work hard to get there!”
“Take pride in how far you come and have faith in how far you can go,” said Ebonee Hanson. “Congratulations MLK 2022 scholars. You did it.”
Again, congratulations seniors. We are so proud of you!
