It took two failed drafts of a graduation speech for Principal Linda Kingston to realize how she wanted to address the Class of 2014 for the final time.
“All I really wanted to do at 10:30 last night was read you your last story from school,” said Kingston on Thursday as she pulled out a chair and proceeded to read the Jesse Bethel High School graduating class Dr. Seuss’ “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”
The children’s classic — the last book Seuss published before his death — tells the story of a young person’s journey into the unknown, from reaching soaring heights to being isolated and alone. But in the end, the book guarantees success.
