Class of 2021 Commencement Speech
Written and delivered by Mrs. Brigid Duncan
Class of 2021, your teachers and I are so very proud to share in the excitement of what this day means to you and how proud we are of the hard work and achievements of each and every one of you here today. I am truly humbled, honored, and excited to give you this final speech from the faculty and staff at CMCP.

But before I do that, let’s look back at the past four years and when it all began in August 2017. As students new to CMCP you all came from various middle but at CMCP you became one; you became a family. I remember last year before we went on lockdown, at the spring pep rally, Class of 2021 was the loudest, most in sync, most competitive and worked as one team to beat the then Seniors (Class of 2020). We will always remember the chant Class of 2021 used to get Micheal McInnis up and on the gym floor to breakdance, and again when you got him up to do the moon dance as he went up to receive his Junior Ring from Dr. Mucheck. 

We will also look back at the start of this crazy final year for you Seniors. It was such a strange time for everyone. The pandemic created hybrid classrooms and teachers would speak into a blank screen in a Zoom meeting calling “Donnovan G. are you there? Thaddeus Franklin, can you hear me?” This year will be remembered as the only year Seniors had to vote on a Senior Superlative titled “Most likely to arrive Zoom classes late!” Congratulations Dylan Bailey on that celebratory achievement!  

Now you are on the cusp of adulthood. You are closing the chapter on your educational journey from K thru 12 and as anxious, excited, and nervous as you are right now, the journey is only just beginning. Graduation is like a bridge to the next part of your life, and everything that got you here—hard work, drive, and confidence—is going to carry you across to the future you deserve. 

As you leave here today remember these 4 P’s: Perseverance, Persistence, People, and Prayer. They will help you overcome difficult challenges and establish building blocks of success for you as you matriculate into adulthood.

The first P: Perseverance. Someday you’ll look back and think, “Wow, I graduated at the strangest time ever! A global pandemic that shut down schools, businesses and forced everyone around the world to remain home at the same time.” This past academic year will be documented in the history books as the year we learned how to attend classes online, how to cope with emotional and mental anxieties, and how to combat computer screen fatigue. Seniors, you can and did overcome these challenges, and why? Because Class of 2021 you are….Lions Strong.

Class of 2021, your community and the world is expecting you to overcome many challenges but we know that your time here at CMCP has prepared you for these and many more. Advocate for justice for all, equality for all, love for everyone and continue to spread the message of our faith and spirituality. We can’t wait to see where life will take you next. Wherever it is, our prayers go with you! Remember CMCP will always be home to you and you are Lions Strong.

People say the king of the jungle is the Lion. He is not the fastest animal, he is not the tallest one, and definitely not the wisest. Yet he is still the King without all that and why? He is the strongest one. Remember you are A CMCP Lion and that makes you #LionsStrong. God bless you and God bless our nation. Thank you.
