Congratulations to the members of the Class of 2019! On June 28, we will celebrate their graduation from high school and wish them the best as they begin the next stage of their lives.
In 1940, during a speech at the University of Pennsylvania, Franklin Delano Roosevelt said, “We cannot always build the future for our youth, but we can build our youth for the future.” At that time, the nation was evolving out of the Great Depression and on the cusp of entering World War II. It had thrived during the Roaring Twenties and hit bottom during the economic devastation of the 1930s. Throughout his lifetime, President Roosevelt had seen great changes that had captured the American imagination. These included things such as the airplane, air conditioning and everyday items like the zipper. From his perspective, the world was changing quickly and the nation needed to build young men and women who could adapt to the unpredictable and inevitable changes.
Today, technology continues to evolve at an almost incomprehensible rate. Information exchange, leading to new ideas, may be the hallmark of this time in history. As the Fabius-Pompey Central School District celebrates high school graduation, we do so with the confidence that a well-rounded education has instilled the flexibility, adaptability and creativity necessary for the graduates to participate in a future that we can only partially predict.
On behalf of the Fabius-Pompey Central School District and the Board of Education, I offer congratulations to the graduates and families of the Class of 2019.
