We are lights BY HOPE HAZELTON ECHS Valedictorian

Good morning, seniors, teachers, and families. Before I begin, there are several thanks I need to give, first and foremost to God, who is before all things and holds all things together. To my Mama, Papa, and brother, who taught me love from the beginning, and always embraced and supported who I am. To Mr. Young, Mr. Sewell, Mrs. Bowles, Madame Poling and Madame Barber, Mrs. Byrnes, Mrs. Milam, Mrs. Pater, and Dr. Pompeo, who have not only been impactful teachers in my life, but who are also people I aspire to be like. When I first learned I would be delivering this year’s valedictorian address, I was daunted by the task. Though I’ve always enjoyed public speaking, I found myself fretting over every little thing that could go wrong. Would I stumble over the words? Would I tear up in the middle of the speech? Would I be able to find the right things to say? Now, after everything that has happened in the past two months, those fears seem oddly mundane and distant. I almost miss them. They were a part of normalcy, just like braving the Brantley intersection or, if you’re like me, feeling anxious about finding a parking spot at EC in the morning. It’s strange to say goodbye, especially when the end of our time in high school arrived unannounced and unanticipated. When I think about the current situation, the word “overwhelming” is the first to come to mind. Ironically, that same word harkens back to a special memory. One night in late December, I found myself compelled to step onto the back porch, into the cold and darkness. No coat, no socks. Biting wind. It was something that ought to have been miserable; however, my eyes wandered upward. It was a clear night, and the sky was speckled with stars. I looked straight up, into the expanse. It was so...vast. Beneath it I became aware of just how small I was, and for a moment I marvelled at the fact I wasn’t crushed. The sensation was overwhelming, but there was no panic. Instead, I felt peace in my heart, as though the great expanse

had wrapped itself around me and cradled me like a child. Today, as we face something immense, I recall that peace. Even in darkness, our spirits can find calm, comfort, and certainty. Be stubborn. In times like this, a smile is a victory. I think there’s something to be said for the human spirit. It endures. It comes out of hardship stronger than it was before. Class of 2020, I encourage you to keep your head up. Though we may be entering a world that is different, there are some things that cannot be altered. For one, the world is ripe with beautiful things. You can find art in everything you see. Music in everything you touch. As we graduate and prepare to enter adult life, I implore you not to lose a child’s sense of wonder. There’s power in it. Just as there’s power in the love of those around us, in togetherness. These are other things that will not be changed. Our time at East Coweta will be something I always treasure. These past four years have been filled with learning and growth, but also with little moments I’m sure many of us, myself included, initially took for granted. Like waving hello and goodbye to our teachers. Hearing Chief Allen tell us he loves us during the morning announcements. Cheering on our teams and chanting with our band. Laughing, and crying, at the Echostage shows. Cramming for a test with friends at lunch. Group hugs, group prayers. These memories are precious. They hold a special place in the core of experiences that makes us who we are, and that made us ECHS. Today is the start of something new. It may not look or feel the way we expected, but that in no way invalidates all that we’ve accomplished to reach this moment. The time has come for us to gather up everything we’ve learned, and take our first steps into our futures. Though the next big adventure is always an exciting prospect, there’s a certain melancholy to leaving our adolescence behind. A common piece of advice offered when someone is feeling sad is to let go. I say hold on. Hold on to the friendships, the silliness, the days that were special, the days that were ordinary. Hold on, and be at peace. The memories won’t abandon you. Class of 2020, the world is a dark place right now. Together, bound and strengthened by our time as high school students, we are lights. Thank you.

Grow from the ashes BY JOSHUA WHITE ECHS Salutatorian

Graduation Speech, Social Distancing Edition, take 459. The number one thing we’ve learned as students at ECHS is that the hallways are too narrow. The most dangerous place at school was the Longstreet-Brantley intersection during class change. Now, the hallways are empty and have been for months. An invisible, sinister threat lurks in the hallways: COVID-19. March 12 was a normal Thursday, and then, suddenly, on Friday the 13th, school was gone (spooky). What I miss most about school is the people. Sitting with my friends at lunch. Cracking jokes in the middle of English class (to the dismay of Mrs. Byrnes). If you were dual enrolled like me, class continued at home. By the time this speech airs, I’ll have had 8 math classes, which is way too many for any sane, reasonable person. When solving math problems, there are a variety of approaches. Often, you can plug something into a formula and use logic to get the correct answer. However, some problems are not as straightforward. You have to throw metaphorical spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks. Real life problems are a lot like that. Sometimes there is a logical answer, but as humans are famously illogical, sometimes there is a lot of pasta on the floor. When you are trying to make decisions, there’s a lot of information out there, and not all of it is true. As our 16th president, Abraham Lincoln, once said: “Not everything you read on the internet is true.” There are real consequences to believing in misinformation. For example, some people believe there is a link between vaccines and autism. Although this has been discredited by multiple scientific studies, some parents still skip vaccinating their children. Vaccination has eradicated measles in America; however, cases are occasionally brought back in from people who

have travelled abroad. Specifically, in 2017, a Minnesota community with previously high vaccination rates listened to misinformation and stopped getting the MMR vaccine. This led to an outbreak of measles, 65 cases. Although there were no deaths, the research of Dr. Michael Mina, an professor of epidemiology at Harvard, says measles causes the immune system to “forget” diseases it has already fought. What I am saying here is that we need to listen to science, because when we don’t, people get hurt. With a global pandemic lurking, it is important, now more than ever, to listen to science, and the science says to stay inside and away from people when possible. So what do you do when you are staying away from people? Do you use social media or play video games all day, only stopping for food and bathroom breaks? Yeah, me too - wait I accidentally said the truth - NO No don't do that. While it seems like we have nothing useful to do, we can better ourselves. For example, I’m learning how to cook. Last week I made some hamburgers with homemade buns for family dinner. Not to flex but they were pretty tasty. Next time, I’m making spaghetti with homemade garlic bread. Here’s the part of my speech where I thank people. Thank you mom and dad, without you, this speech wouldn’t exist. My dad taught me how to read and my mom kicked my tail for 4 nights straight trying to get me to write this speech. Thank you to my teachers, it’s very hard to be salutatorian without being taught. Specifically, I’d like to thank Mrs. Bowles, Mrs. Milam, Mr. Young, Mme Barber, Mrs. Byrnes and Dr. Pompeo, you were some of the best teachers I’ve had. I’d also like to give a shoutout to all the nerds I hang out with, you know who you are. Class of 2020, we were born around 9/11 and are heading out into the world during a global pandemic. Certainly, our school year ended unexpectedly. It may seem like this year went up in smoke, but here’s some science for you: the ashes of a forest fire serve as ideal fertilizer for new growth. So out of the ashes of the pandemic comes our future. College, Jobs, Families, a chance to make a difference. So take your spaghetti and throw it at some walls.


Congratulations 2020

Be the hope



NHS Valedictorian

ello Newnan!! First, I just want to thank ever yone who has led me where I am today! Thank you to all the teachers who have taught me throughout the years. Thank you to my family who have supported me and seen me go through all my phases. And Finally, Thank you to all the friends I have made along the way who helped shape me into who I am today. I could not have made it without all the support I received. So thank you. I have been blessed. Sitting here now looking at the endless possibilities of the future spread out in front of us, I often become overwhelmed. Most of us have already been overwhelmed by the choice of choosing a college. I definitely was. At the beginning of my senior year, the only two colleges I had even thought of were Georgia and Georgia Tech. But that quickly changed. I spent months visiting schools, researching each one and constantly reorienting my views and finding new options. I narrowed down where to apply, worked hard on the applications and freaked out as I sent them in. I waited anxiously for each response, dissolving into tears at the nos and grin-

ning wildly at the yes. In the end, I did not get accepted into my first choice, but I do not regret dreaming big. I am happy to know that I tried my hardest for what I truly wanted. That is all you can control: your effort. So I am happy with Georgia Tech because I know it is where I am meant to go. I have hope that my experience at Tech will lead me on a path to a greater future. My path may not be what I had originally envisioned, but I know that through hope, effort, and the support of others, I will be able to persevere and make the most of it. My entire college process was one of uncertainty. I did know where I would end up. Making the final decision was freeing, to be done with that period of uncertainty. However, I am moving right into another. I do not know my major or my future career. I don’t not know my roommate or where I will be living, but most glaringly, I don’t know if we will even be on campus in the fall. We were born into a period of uncertainty, and we are graduating in another time of uncertainty. I have one thing to hold onto in all of this. We have one thing: Hope, a feeling of expectation for something or anticipation for something better. I found my way through my college search with the help of my family and the encouragement of my friends and teachers. I relied on them as a reminder to look forward past what was right in front of me and into the bigger picture. I may not be certain about the future but I can be certain of the support of my friends and family. That gives me hope. Yes, it's cliche and yes, a lot of times it doesn't seem like enough. But hope—with a little bit of effort—has helped me get through my uncertain times. I hope that hope can help you too. Uncertainty only has as much power over you as you give it. Uncertain times call for new solutions and fresh perspectives. They call for forward thinking and adapting. I know that our class can be the leaders into this future. We get to be the hope for others, so find your hope and be the hope for someone else. Thank you Newnan for helping my class grow into the people we are today. We graduated. Congratulations Class of 2020!

Seize the day



Newnan High salutatorian

ood evening everyone, thank you for watch ing New na n High School’s first ever virtual graduation. My name is Zach Quick, and I am proud to be able to speak to you all today, regardless of the fact that I’m on a screen. But fear not, I have been prepared for this moment since my fifth grade year at Atkinson Elementary, reading from a teleprompter for the Tiger News Network. The past four years at Newnan High School have meant so much to me, all the way from the first day I stepped on campus as a freshman, with mine and everyone else’s voice sounding like Alvin and the Chipmunks, to March 12th, the last day that I didn’t know was my last, when most of us sounded more like the Allstate guy. The Class of 2020 is unique. We are unique in a way that no other class has ever been or will ever be. We are the last class to have students born during and after the tragedy of September 11, 2001. Even though we do not remember that day, the course of our lives were shaped by it. Our class, more than any other, knows what it’s like to be faced with obstacles that seem impassible, but we always find a way through. In our lifetimes, we were

introduced to heightened security at airports and schools, MUCH more rigorous requirements to get into college, and a society that demands perfection in such uncertain times. Our perseverance was tested by what we have endured in the last several weeks, but we have endured. No obstacle has ever truly stopped us. As a class, we are used to being thrown a curve ball or two, but that has prepared us for the future and whatever comes next. Especially now, when we don’t even know what tomorrow will bring. If we have learned anything, I would say that it would be to seize the day and persevere, no matter what cards we are dealt by the game of life. Horace, the Roman poet, has often been credited with the phrase “Carpe diem." and it typically comes to mind when people say seize the day. But the quote that seems to fit our situation the best is from the mind of Mahatma Gandhi. He said, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” I could not think of better words to describe what the class of 2020 has had to do. Not everything has gone our way, and that is an understatement, but because of what we’ve been through, we are now more prepared than any other class that has ever graduated from Newnan High School. We’ve had to learn to make the best of every single day and keep learning with new challenges constantly thrown at us, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. It has made us come together as a class because we can all relate to how the next person feels. Little things like our favorite class or the way we like to dress can no longer separate us. We all have the ability to make the best of what life throws at us, and nothing we could ever learn in any classroom is as important as that. I want to thank every student in the Newnan High School’s class of 2020. You have all had an impact on my life whether we’ve met face to face or not, and I admire you for being able to persevere in times like this. I hope I have had the same effect on you. Thank You. GO NAVY. And always remember to SEIZE THE DAY.

Expect the unexpected

The most profound lesson BY LUKE HANKS


Northgate Valedictorian

ood evening everyone. It’s hard to believe I have to give my valedictorian speech in front of a camera and not on the field. But I guess unconventional times like these call for an unconventional speech. And so here we are, celebrating one of the greatest days of our lives through a screen. Amazingly, screen or not, I can still feel the energy of the class of 2020. Before I begin, I have to extend a thank you to my parents, friends, the staff, and my God. Your support is invaluable. Thank you for everything. I know what a lot of you must be thinking. I’d say most of you, like myself, are pretty upset at the current situation. You feel robbed of what was to be. Some of you are indifferent. And still, some of you would rather be anywhere else than listening to me speak right now. And that’s okay. But I know one thing we are all sick of hearing about: COVID-19. So let’s forget about it. You pretend we’re at the real graduation, I’ll tell you some things that I learned from high school, and it’ll be great. The most profound lesson Northgate taught me is to cherish and live in the present. One of my favorite quotes about this is from The Office. Andy Bernard says, “I wish there was a way to know you’re in the good old days before you’ve actually left them.” Now, it’s not a bad thing to look forward to the future, but if we are always waiting for what is to come, life will pass us by faster than we realize. Enjoy every moment; they are all “the good old days”. If I could give one piece of advice to my freshman self, it would be to treasure the next four years. We all know they go by way too quickly. There is value in the present moment. I also discovered the value of having an open mind, and that it is okay to be wrong. Northgate introduced me to wide groups of people that are about as different as people can possibly be. I also took a variety of classes where, surprise, I had a lot of wrong answers. Both of these experiences showed me that I don’t know everything and that I can learn something from everyone. I feel that one

of the best qualities we can have is to remain teachable, always. I learned the importance of forming strong relationships. There is nothing better than a group of friends that you can count on. Whether it be Saturday morning ultimate frisbee with the boys, 6 A.M. practices with the cross country team, or doing too much talking and not enough writing in the back of Dr. Sowerbrower’s class, good friends will make life that much easier. I argue that our capacity to love and connect with others is the most powerful part of being human. Finally, I learned how important it is to have a balanced life. You might find this ironic coming from a valedictorian, but there is so much more to life than school. Don’t neglect your social life, family life, mental health, and your physical health for work or education. And don’t do the reverse of that either. If you want to have a truly happy life, you have to tend to every part of it. You know, I used to think this speech was supposed to be super inspiring and motivational. With COVID-19, those feelings quadrupled, and it made me pretty nervous. After a while, I finally realized, frankly, that I know anything I say will be lost in time. A memory. My grandfather used to tell me, "pursue the steady course". Each of us have our own course complete with its own ups and downs, positives and negatives. Each of our experiences will be unique, and you have to be your own motivation as you live them. I know each one of you has limitless potential. As Thoreau put it, we are standing at “the meeting of two eterntities”. It is up to you how you want to spend your next eternity. How ever you spend it, remember your path is just as important as everyone else’s. Whatever you choose to do or choose to be, your role is invaluable. And just like that, I’m done lecturing you. I want to thank each one of you for making high school the best four years of my life. The Class of 2020 is not special because of this unexpected virus but because of our character and our strength. Congratulations to you all, you deserve it.



Northgate Salutatorian

reetings to all the friends, family, teachers, guests, and N o r t h g a t e ’s G r a d u a t i n g Class of 2020 for attending this extremely special ceremony. It is an honor to speak to you all this morning/afternoon/evening albeit the unforeseen circumsta nces. To begin, I would like to give my immense gratitude to all those who have made this ceremony possible. Tha n k you P r incipa l Kesselr ing and all of the Northgate staff for guiding us through these past four years, as well as Superintendent Dr. Baker, as they all have been working diligently to provide us seniors w ith the closest sembla nce to a graduating season as possible. Also, to the families here today, including my own, I would like to thank you all for providing us with unconditional love and support as we enter a new stage of our lives. Lastly, to the Class of 2020, congratulations! A s the world continues to spiral around us, we can at least take this one moment to sit down and realize that we’ve officially made it. I am going to essentially summarize my entire speech, advice, words of wisdom, or whatever you wou ld l i ke to c a l l it i nto th re e words you’ve probably heard before: expect the unexpected. A few weeks ago we were told that prom had been cancelled, a few months ago we abruptly had our last day at Nor thgate, a year ago being a senior was on the tip of our tongue, a nd a few ye a r s a go we wa l ke d the halls of Northgate for the first time. At that time we had no idea what to expect, we were just curious eyes that wandered the posters of the classrooms because we had no real plan or direction. And it almost seems as if we have come full circle since in the past three months the world stopped and lost its own direction. So what I would like to say is that there is change constantly surrounding us, and we will never know when it is going to hit us, especially in the future. We could have the image of our ideal lives perfectly mapped and planned,

but there will always be the smallest detail that will deviate. So no matter how cliche it sounds, always expect the unexpected. Now that the next stage of our lives is upon us, this proverb will probably hold much more mea ning. Life is excellent at pulling us i n d i re ction s we never thou g ht p o s sible , go o d or bad , a nd now that we will be heading off on our own, it’ll feel all the more aggressive. We should be reminded that the changes in our lives are precursors to growth, and that everything happens for a reason. Just like how failure breeds success, and weakness highlights strength, change builds growth, and we should all expect major changes in our lives soon. Therefore, the message I’d like to send is a simple, yet important, one. Prov ide yourself w ith faith and hope during these times of change, because they are guaranteed to shock you. And whether it brings you to the lowest you’ve ever been, keep faith that life will surprise you and lead you to somet h i n g m a g n i f ic ent . A nd i f t h i s change blesses you with everything you’ve ever wished for, hope that it will never leave you. Although I cannot explain why this year has been so crazy, I can at least try to connect it back to my speech, and I would say that it is a reflection of what the life ahead us awaits: lots of uncertainty, but we have to power through anyways. And we will power through. Our class has endured a lot, and we will take this strength with us as we move on with our futures. I have no doubt that all of you will achieve greatness and success; high school has only been a stepping stone in the climb to our goals, and as we leave it behind I wish you all luck a nd for titude. It is a n honor to graduate with you all today, have hope and always expect the unexpected. Congratulations Class of 2020! Thank you.
