Neil deGrasse Tyson gives 2017 Commencement Speech
This year, I had the double honor of being present for two amazing events.
Firstly, The Laboratory School of Finance & Technology graduated our first class of High School Seniors. The majority of these students have been with us since they were in 6th Grade. They are a testament to hard work and perseverance. I am honored to have served as their Principal. I know that they will go on to affect real change in the world and continue to represent the Core Values of The Lab School. I am so proud of who you are.
Secondly, we had the honor of having world–renowned astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson, as our Commencement Speaker. His inspiring words electrified the crowd as they sat in rapt attention. They will carry his words of encouragement and motivation forward as they embark on their new and exciting individual journeys. I would like to thank Mr. deGrasse Tyson for his time and message. His presence made a special event even more unforgettable.
Last, but not least, I would like to thank the parents and staff of The Laboratory School of Finance and Technology for the hard work, love, and support that they have given our students over the years. I respect and honor you, none of this would have been possible without you.
