My Speech

And now seniors -- You did it!  I’m pretty sure the seniors have a pool going on and have made bets about when I start crying.  I’m doing pretty well, huh? I would like at this time to thank the USD 294 School Board for allowing me to continue doing what I truly love – which is teaching.  This principal gig – well, it’s been an interesting year – to say the least. Because I am not only these incredible kids’ principal but also their English teacher, I’ve really gotten to know them this year, and I will forever be grateful for that.  Parents and grandparents – these are 19 amazing kids, and I thank you for sharing them with me and the rest of the staff. 


On the first day of school, I told you that you would determine how the year would go. Remember?  Your leadership, attitude, and energy would dictate the kind of year we had.  Now eleven months later – how did you do?  Thumbs up, thumbs down? Definitely, thumbs up. We had a great year, and you 19 are the reason for that. Each of you has made such a significant impact on the school year, and I am so proud of every one of you. 


Kimi Jo – your smile and your telling me “how nice I look” brightened every day. And no matter what anyone else says, I know that I am your favorite.


Eryn Freeman – your willingness to always speak your mind inspires me.  You are beautiful on the inside and outside, and your love of anything gross – guts, blood, dissections - anything, AND your caring heart solidifies you are meant to be a nurse.


Landen – any time I can get you to smile makes my day.  On the rare occasion that you ask me an English question – makes my entire week or month.


Skyler – your beautiful heart and your good work ethics will make you successful in everything you do.  You may be going off to Wyoming, but you will never get rid of me!  Ever!


Piper –You have such vision and so many creative, amazing talents. You can make a masterpiece out of a block of wood or a sheet of metal. There is nothing you can’t do.  Nothing! Go conquer the world. You can do that too.


Amy– my last Wentz! I loved every single one of my Wentzes – even your dad! It has been a pleasure having you in class. I will miss those bright blue eyes and your kind heart – and your whole, big, beautiful, wonderful family.


Kenny – you are a warrior and so much stronger and smarter than you know. Don’t you let anyone or anything ever hold you back. Ever!


Jack Lee – I adore you!  You know that.  I probably got after you more than anyone else, but at the end of the day, you still put up with me, and you know that you will always have a special place in my heart.


Gabe – you are witty and so crazy smart. You get the farthest distance-from-home-and-your-momma award.  Best of luck, kiddo, in Vermont.


Courtlyn– your sweet smile and beautiful eyes brighten a room.  You are kind and tough and always find the good in people! Don’t ever lose that!


Bryson– I am so thankful your mom and dad let you come to DCHS this year.  You made such an impact on the short time you were here.  It’s been a pleasure getting to know you.


Alissa Sporn – you are so crazy creative and there is so much goodness packed inside that tiny body. Your sweet soul coupled with your creativity inspires me!  I adore you.


Erin May – we’ve been through a lot together, and I am so proud of all you have accomplished.  You will succeed wherever you go, whatever you do, and I pity anyone who tries to get in your way!


Kalen – you make me laugh.  I love your free spirit and your kind soul. Your serenading me in class with the Singers was truly one of the highlights of my year. You are unforgettable!


Colton - you have such a kind heart and are so very caring.   At the same time, you have such persistence that keeps you moving forward.  You may get knocked down, but you always get back on your feet. Don’t ever ever lose that.


Alyssa  –  you are creative, smart, a heck of a writer, and not too bad at volleyball and basketball.  Your many God-given talents combined with your hard work will take you wherever you want to go. You have never ceased to amaze me. Rock Chalk!


Sager –  I want you to always see yourself as I see you – beautiful, gifted, smart, fun, creative. You love your family and your friends with your whole heart. 


Daws – You have brightened my world. Because of your friendship with my Kole, you will never get rid of me!  You should be so proud of all you accomplished this year. I know I am. Love you!!!


Anna – I will miss your leadership, your creativity – and your laugh. You are not afraid to speak up for yourself or anyone else, and that quality will take you wherever you want to go.  Thank you for the great year.


It is your wonderful qualities that I want to remember about this year and this class – not this awful pandemic.  It is your accomplishments, your hard work, your personalities, the laughter, the discussions, each of YOU – that is what I want to remember when I look back on the Class of 2020. You are greater than your circumstances. As Erin said, you,  The class of 2020 is a force to be reckoned with.”


Luke Combs in your class song sings

Just 'cause you're leavin'
It don't mean that I won't be right by your side......
I might be here, But I'll always be right there.” I love you all.


SO - Go do great things! Spread your wings but remember you have roots.  And as Anna said, “The rest of your life starts right now.”  Thank you
