Reflections on America's Educational Systemand the Corporate Sector
President Durst, distinguished faculty, soon-to-be-distinguished graduates, proud family members and friends in the Baldwin-Wallace community ... thank you for honoring me with the chance to be part of this extremely meaningful event in your lives and for including me as a member of the class of 2007. I know this is a day that you will all remember, as will I.
When President Durst first asked me to speak at this commencement for the education and business administration master's degree students I asked myself: "Am I really a suitable person to address these graduates?" But, within a few days it occurred to me that at least I had one qualification for the job: I am the proud son of a remarkable career high school teacher.
