I’ve been going to the gym every so often during the week to prepare for a certain summer tournament comeback after being 4 years away. My iPhone songs get mundane and it becomes quite boring on the treadmill, bike, etc., whatever! Recently, I’ve changed it up and started to listen to a variety of college and university graduation speeches. In short, they’ve been great… no, absolutely excellent!
I forgot who spoke during my graduation speech. I also didn’t really care. I had a job already lined up for the Fall and was looking forward to a backpacking trip all over Europe that summer. At the very least, watching the speeches while on the treadmill forgets that I’m doing a multi-mile run. And while my body is getting healthy, so is the mind. Below, are three of my favorite grad speeches from three different professions.
