It's the season of graduations. Locally, Hopkinton High will celebrate its commencement tonight.
It can also be the season of overwrought speeches and cliched advice. Each year, valedictorians, class presidents, guest speakers and administrators are tasked with imparting wisdom onto a new class of graduates. It's a challenge to stay fresh, to say something that hasn't been said before.
That said, some advice is worth repeating. What's the best graduation/life advice you've ever received? What would you tell the graduates about what lies ahead?
Add to it with your advice in the comments.
