One of Sharbot Lake’s most enduring traditions was played out last week at the high school.
Kara Irwin (photo left) delivered the valedictory address at the end of the fall commencement ceremony for students from Sharbot Lake High School who graduated last June.
In his introduction, teacher Randy McVety made reference to all of the work Kara Irwin did over her years on student council. He said that it was always her goal to include every student in the school in all the events she organized and promoted.
Her speech had that same flavour, emphasizing that the members of the graduating class should not be afraid of failure as they make their way into the world because they will always be able to depend upon each other for support due to the bonds that have developed over their years at SLHS.
Kara Irwin is in her first year at the University of Ottawa.
