Thank you for that kind introduction. It is an honor to speak to you this evening and to congratulate Corvallis High School’s great class of 2019!
Indeed, it is a pleasure simply to be back in Corvallis. I have been away for a long time, but this community will always have a special place in my heart. I have many vivid memories from my years here, including from my own graduation ceremony, at which Phil Luarca, a popular business teacher and wrestling coach, gave the keynote address.
