ECHS Valedictorian and Salutatorian Sun Moon & Minji Kang

Overcoming key to achievement BY SUN MOON

ECHS Valedictorian

All this for what? BY MINJI KANG

ECHS Salutatorian

G ood evening, f r iends, family, f acu lty a nd st a f f, d istin g u ished guests, and fellow graduates. Before I begin, I would just like to take a moment to thank the people who brought me into this perilous world of struggle, also known as my beloved parents. Jokes aside, Mom, thank you for putting up with me at my worst and always rooting for me and believing the best in me. Dad, thank you for working night and day, weekdays and weekends, to help me get to where I am today and for being someone who I look up to each day of my life. I ca n’t forget about my sister. Although I never said it, thank you for steering me away from stupid decisions whether it be academic or my terrible fashion sense. To the teachers of ECHS, thank you for truly caring about our success and going beyond the call of duty in your dedication to our students here. I know that I would not be standing here today without the continued support and encouragement from our teachers and staff. To all of my friends, thank you for making me look forward to waking up every morning. You guys mean the world to me, and I’ll never forget the memories that we made. Thou g h I ’ve re c eive d m a ny requests for shout-outs and namedropping, you guys know who you are and that I love you all. L astly, a huge shout out to the CDC for making this joint graduation possible and saving us the headache of deciding who was worthy of our five graduation tickets.

Just when I thought that writing the valedictorian speech was the last big thing I had to worry about, I wrecked my dad’s car in an epic train vs. car situation in late April. What a sudden turn of events, right? I won’t get into the details of how I got stuck on the train tracks, but I can say that my inattentivene s s a nd m i nd le s sne s s were the culprits. Getting stuck on the rails, trying to push the car out, calling the police, and the alarm blaring that the train was coming all took place in the span of only three minutes, giving me no time to think or stop the train. Thankfully, no lives were harmed and the only things that were dama ge d were my dad’s c a r a nd my ego, but I guess you could say that I’m on the same level with Superman on stopping trains, so that’s something. However, m isfor tu ne s d id not seem to stop with me. I cracked my brand-new Macbook screen and lost my airpods, thanks again to my carelessness. Although it’s been only a month since all of this happened, it seems as though it happened forever ago. I’ve learned that no matter how bad of a situation we put ourselves into, it will pass, and we will learn. At the time something bad happens we have no idea how to get th rou g h it , but then we do. We will look back and laugh at those memories because they will seem so insignificant. The reason that I shared the story of my most recent big mistake is because I believe how we handle

failures and struggles is what ultimately makes or breaks our lives. The failures in business are what brings better understanding of what needs to be done to be successful. The injuries in the gym are what e ve nt u a l ly le a d s a p e r s on t o a proper form and bigger pecs. The struggles of honest confrontation are what create respect and trust in relationships. Experiencing struggles is what allows for courage and perseverance to grow. The point is that achieving anything worthwhile is won by overcoming the associated unpleasant experiences. Cl a s s of 2 021, I w i sh I c ou ld say that life is going to go smo oth ly, but a s I got to k now better tha n others, there w ill a lways be tra in s a lon g the way. Just in the last four years, we survived and made it despite COVID19 and its Google Meet high school, the tor nado, hor r if y ing Tik Tok trends and drama, and cryptocurr enc y f r en z y. To wh at ever m ay come next, we will make the most out of it. It is an honor to graduate with such an amazing group of peers. I know that every one of us has what it t a kes to accomplish our goals because we have always gotten back up stronger and will continue to do so in the future. Best of luck to all of you in whatever your next step may be and keep in mind that only out of suffering do the strongest souls emerge. And for one last time, “If no one’s told you this morning, I love you and I always will.”

“Success is not key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” These are the words of the German philosopher Albert Schweitzer. Which path have you decided to take on for your future? Too of ten, people become overly focused on material gain, equating future money with future happiness and choosing their path for the f uture based on monetar y prospects. It's com monplace for i nd iv idua ls to be merely complacent with getting a GPA they consider high or going to a renowned college without asking themselves: “All this for what?” Of course, living through those dreadf ul yea rs of a ll-nighters a nd piles of homework have seemed like an eternity for all of us... and for some parents as well. We often forget what we are really passionate about and strive for some abstract version of “success” and neglect to realize that we must define success for ourselves. I urge you to define success on your own terms. To look for fulfilment and validation internally, rather than externally. To recognize how malleable the world is in your hands, and both that your journey and destination are solely your own. Take pride in the things you have earned and be humble in regards to the things you’ve been given. Finally, to all the graduates sitting in front of me, I hope that as we end this chapter of our lives, we are also ready to st a r t a new jour ney. I believe we can take our opportunity in the future to inspire, motivate, and overcome to change the world. Good luck to you all, and congratulations, Class of 2021!

DETERMINED. RESILIENT. UNFORGETTABLE.

Congratulations 2021

Dear Class of 2021,

When we face challenges, we have a choice of how to respond. Yes, the choice may be difficult as we experience exhaustion, frustration, sometimes even grief. But choice remains a part of our path and a part of what we can control. Instead of focusing on what has been lost, on the negative, choose to rise up. Just as many of you have already done with other life challenges, rise up and rise above. You have experienced tremendous frustration and loss since March, and it would be easy to remain focused there. But if you stay there, you won’t grow. You won’t rise up. Resilience is one of the most important traits a person can have. Resilience is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. Do you feel like you have faced any difficulties lately? What do you say, class of 2021? I know the answer to that. You have faced difficulties. Now overcome them and rise up. Resilience allows us to experience life challenges and turn them into growth, into a strength. Rise up and rise above this. This experience will make you stronger. This experience will prepare you for all you will face in the future. Because, I assure you, this pandemic is not your last challenge in life. More importantly, it is not your last chance to rise up and demonstrate your resilience. Keep growing and keep going even when it looks like you have an obstacle in your way. Use this historical experience to get ready to change the world. Because you WILL change the world. You are stronger because of what you have experienced these past few months. Here and in the future, see the opportunity in every challenge. And when you are not challenged, I encourage you to enjoy every moment. Everyone, enjoy this moment. You absolutely deserve this moment. You are an incredible class and an outstanding group of people. I have no doubt about the great things that are ahead for each of you. Also always remember, If no one has told you today, I love you and always will.

Are you considering moving to an assisted living community?

Why not Monarch House.

Even during the pandemic, the unique construction of Monarch House and its features allowed our residents to really never stop living the ‘senior life!’ A Letter from the Owner of Monarch House Assisted Living Monarch House has been coping with the COVID-19 virus by not only protecting our residents but also maintaining an active social program specifically aimed at keeping our seniors connected with each other and their families. With only 41 resident suites and over 25,000 sq. ft. of community space, it was that huge area of community space which allowed our residents to continue with the variety of daily activities during the pandemic allowing for social engagement that is so vital to the health of our Monarch House family. Our residents were able to use the many features of that community space – a 1950s vintage drug store diner, an intimate bar lounge, a salon, a library and rooftop patio gardens that surround a huge Solarium where residents nurture flowers, herbs & seasonal vegetables. Even with the COVID restrictions, our small family of seniors has continued to live life to the fullest ... in fact we never stopped. Our residents enjoyed ice cream socials, daily exercise classes set to music, pinball, skeeball, billards, daily matinee and evening movies in our theater with its huge screen, entertainers including singing groups, magic shows, art projects directed by local creative artists and literary readings by none other than author T.M. Brown. All of this has been an enormous benefit in keeping our residents engaged and it shows. And here it is in mid-May and family members are again welcome to spend time with their parents & grandparents in a safe environment that restores these vital connections. I am so very thankful that we have an outstanding staff of caregivers that have huge hearts and give loving attention to each and every one of our residents. Our Activities Director Dez Ross has boundless energy with a heart that is bursting with love for all of our seniors. Kaci Fowler is our resident nurse that attends to the individual health care needs of everyone. And overseeing all of this is our Executive Director Andy Brown. I jokingly like to say that I must be a genius to have brought Andy on in this important position. Andy always gives extra attention to the welfare of our residents and staff, and it shows. Thanks to all of you for your dedication to our Monarch House family!

While attempting to balance physical health and safety with emotional health was not easy during these unprecedented times, the Monarch House did just that! Thank you for providing my Mother (Lottie) with a healthier more fulfilling life in a family-like atmosphere. – Tammy Worsham

But, don’t take my word for any of this. Check out some of our family testimonials.

We rest easy knowing that Dad is in such a clean, cheerful environment where his safety and well-being always comes first. Monarch House has given us our lives back and has given Dad (Ray) an opportunity to flourish among folks his age. Thanks Monarch House. – Jenny Baker

Thank you to the Monarch House administration and staff for making the very best of the virus crisis we’ve all lived through the past 14 months. You have done a great job following government guidelines, while at the same time remembering our family members are human beings with individual needs. All the extra activities to keep the residents engaged helped to keep them healthy and happy. Posting on FaceBook helped me feel in touch almost daily. The rooftop lounge, greenhouse and garden really helped Mom (Carolyn) not feel so restricted. We love and appreciate you, every day! – Diane and our extended family

NGHS Valedictorian and Salutatorian

More than conquerors

BY ANSLEY HIGHTOWER

C

Newnan High Valedictorian

lass of 2021! Look at us! We made it! I feel like this past year has been a dream, and I am going to wake up on March 12, 2020, with everything as it was. It does not even feel like I am a senior, so it took me a while to start writing this speech. In fact, I procrastinated on it, which is not a part of my personality whatsoever. In fact, Mr. Akers named me the student “most likely to finish Mastering Chemistry before he had even taught all of the material” during the AP Chem Dundies, which, to my family’s surprise, did not mean that I had actually mastered chemistry. It was just that I finished our homework on the site called Mastering Chemistry before everyone else. Mr. Akers was simply making fun of me. All that to say, I am not a procrastinator, but I did with this speech. I wanted it to be perfect, in order to leave you all with a few profound and memorable thoughts. While we may be far from perfect, we were made perfectly for this moment in time. Our junior and senior years have been

nothing close to ideal, yet we made the most of it. I know you have heard tons of people say it, but you truly are some of the most inspiring and resilient people I have ever known. I am inspired every day to be a part of this class and this community. The class of 2021 reminds me of my favorite Bible verse that says, “No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” That verse has gotten me through some hard days when I felt like I could not study anymore, when I felt like I could not spend one more day in quarantine, when I thought I could not take another look at our fractured, but not broken, community without bursting into tears. But we made it, and we are here at the Drake as conquerors, the class of 2021. With all that being said, I am going to miss being with you all every day, through the mundane, day to day life of high school. I will always look back on the football games, cafeteria lunches, and pep rallies with a smile, but what I will miss the most are the small moments many have already forgotten: playing ultimate frisbee in the park with friends; going on drives with the carpool karaoke microphone, music blaring, windows down; going to Dairy Queen every other day once we got our drivers’ licenses; making a vlog as Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth for AP Euro; TP’ing Ms. Lynch’s room, with permission, to make it look like a leprechaun visited for St. Patrick’s Day. I encourage you to look for these small, memorable moments throughout your life. These seemingly trivial memories will be silver linings that help you continue to conquer all the challenges that lie ahead. Thank you, class of 2021. I would not be standing here without each of you. I would like to thank my Lord for being my guiding Shepherd, my parents for pushing me to be my best, my sister for poking fun at me when I am being too serious, my friends for bringing laughter into each and every day, and my teachers and counselors for inspiring me to learn and grow. I am so proud of us. Congratulations, class of 2021! Go Jackets!

This too shall pass

BY SARAH DEAN

G

Newnan High salutatorian

ood evening, class of 2021. I am honored and humbled to stand here before you all tonight. I first want to thank my parents, teachers, and counselors for the continued support they have shown me that has allowed me to be here in front of you all today. I also want to extend my deepest congratulations to all of my classmates and commend you for the strength you all have shown these past four years. When I was very young, I remember my father comforting me about a sadness that time has since erased from my memory. After he wiped away the tears that stained my face, he told me, "Sarah, this too shall pass." He did not have to elaborate on the phrase for me to understand its meaning: the fears and worries I was feeling in that moment would soon be washed out of my mind, like sand upon the shore. For some reason, I latched onto that phrase. As I grew older, I would write it on my hand and whisper it to myself when I was feeling nervous or sad. It brought me solace, knowing that soon I would no longer be feeling the pain I was expe-

riencing in that moment. Today, we are each confronted by the uncertainty of our futures. We all have fears about the challenges we will have to face – the mountains we will have to move and the valleys we will have to cross. When you face these struggles and sorrows, find comfort in the thought that this too shall pass. Your hardest moment will be just that – a moment. A blip on the radar. Everything, and I truly mean everything, will be all right. The other meaning of "This too shall pass," the meaning that I did not realize recently, is that the good moments pass just as quickly as the bad ones do. After all that has happened to our school lately, we have all been reminded that even the smallest pockets of joy are incredibly valuable, and they are often momentary. When we start our futures, we must treasure our happy moments, because we never know when they will fade away. Graduation marks an end and a beginning, and I feel the phrase "This too shall pass" epitomizes it. High school is over. All of those moments have passed, good and bad. As we all look to the future, we will encounter difficult obstacles that frighten us, but we must find comfort in the fact that time will heal those sorrows. At the same time, we must also treasure our times of happiness. Albert Camus, the French philosopher and author of one of my favorite books, “The Stranger,” said, "Men must live and create. Live to the point of tears." Like Camus said, live to tears. Each moment we have will pass, whether it is a moment of loss or a moment of joy. The time we have is precious, invaluable, and it must be treasured. Starting in this moment, I challenge you all to live with this in mind – that all the sorrow and struggle we will face in our lives will pass. We will be okay. But we cannot forget to cherish those happy times we have together as well. Live with passion, because life is short and nothing, no feeling, lasts forever. This too shall pass. Thank you.

High school, like life, is a journey

BY WILL STEPHENS

Northgate Valedictorian

ood evening! First, I want t o s t a r t of f by g iv i n g thanks. Thank you to my parents, Sid and Alicia Stephens and the rest of my family for their support throughout the years. Thank you to Coach Wilson, Coach Reeves and the entire cross country and track teams for being with me every step of my high school journey. Thank you to the Northgate faculty and the Coweta County Board of Education for making this graduation ceremony happen. And finally, thank you to my teachers and you, the Class of 2021, for your friendship and encouragement. High school, like life, is a journey. Class of 2021, we started our journey at Northgate just like every other previous class. We began as wide-eyed freshmen who had trouble navigating the school. A s s ophomor e s , we endu r e d another year as underclassmen. Then came junior year where our school year was suddenly cut short – no more hanging out with friends, no more sports and no prom. However, the real journey had only just begun.

We started our senior year like no other class in the history of Northgate High School. Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to begin our senior year virtually. Instead of starting our senior year together at Northgate, we started the year divided by computer screens. After that, we slowly made our way back to campus, but were still divided into cohorts. And just as we were beginning to re-establish a sense of normalcy this spring, an EF4 tornado hit our beloved town. It’s safe to say that we have encountered many roadblocks on our journey this senior year. But however great the challenge, there was an opportunity for success because of our resilience and perseverance. Together, we navigated virtual school through the COVID pandemic. Together, we overcame the obstacles of being divided into cohorts. Together, we supported our neighbors in need by volunteering af ter the tornado and donating an abundance of supplies. And together, Class of 2021, despite everything that’s happened in the last year, we have found a way to celebrate our senior year, and that’s why we’re here tonight! High school, like life, is a journey. The challenges and roadblocks that we have faced in high school, and especially in our senior year, will prepare us for the challenges and roadblocks that lie ahead in life. As Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. s a id, “ The u lti m ate me asure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Class of 2021, we have stood Northgate strong during these times of adversity and prevailed through them together. Class of 2021, I cannot wait to see what we do next! Thank you!

There,s a difference only you can make BY CASSIE HUYNH

Northgate Salutatorian

ood evening ladies and gentlemen, parents and f riends, teachers and staff, and most of all, Northgate’s Graduating Class of 2021! It is my greatest honor to speak faceto-face to you all on this special day and NOT virtually. Sadly, I can’t blame all the errors in my speech on the wifi. Before I begin, I’d like to express a huge amount of gratitude for all of the people who helped make today possible. On behalf of all the students, I want to thank everyone sitting out in the auditorium and those who could not make it today. Thank you to the parents, families, and supporters who have helped us reach this milestone in our lives. Thank you and sorry to the elementary school and middle school teachers who retired after having our class. Thank you Northgate faculty and staff, administrators, teachers, and Principal Kesselring for finding a way to put up with us energetic high schoolers. I would also like to especially thank Ms. Ramsay, my friends, and my family for supporting me since day one, and last but not least, all of us – the students – deserve a huge pat on the back. Guys, today officially marks the last day of dress code. Honestly, at first, I had no clue what to write for this speech, and right now, I am still questioning what I wrote. When you have to present an essay you didn’t want with THE Abby Collins and THE Will Stephens plus having a terminal case of senioritis since eighth grade, the odds aren’t really in your favor. So, I did what I do best … procrastinated and then turned to Urban Dictionary for inspiration. What’s a salutatorian, you might ask? “The person who just missed being valedictorian by a few GPA points. A very miserable person indeed. Second place is just the first loser.” However, no one should be miserable today – maybe except for our parents’ wallets. We are here because we have worked extremely hard these past four years to walk across this stage as winners. High school has flown by, and I know that no other class can beat how crazy our four years together was. It was just yesterday when our middle school teachers kept

nagging us to sign up for classes, or else you would end up with aerobic dance. “This is the most important four years of your life,” they threatened. Then … oh boy. On the first day of ninth grade, some of us came in with the map of the school and our schedules as our home screens. As the year went on, we experienced the random snowstorm and the code red – we all remember that. Now, we all know that there really is a pool on the top floor of the ninth-grade building, and there IS a Northgate ghost here who I know is laughing at my speech right now. I honestly don’t remember what happened in 10th grade (short term memory loss, am I right?), but I do know that the calmness of 10th grade led us to the storm of 11th and 12th grade. Eleventh grade was truly memorable: crying down the hallways as we traveled from AP class to AP class (I formally apologize to the custodians), constantly signing up for the SAT and the ACT but each one getting cancelled, and working out with Chloe Ting to burn your quarantine “gain 15.” And here we are now, 12th graders ongoing to 13th grade. It was just yesterday when we all stepped foot into Northgate, already wanting to graduate. Today, we’re stepping out of Northgate and into a new chapter of our lives. We’re still young, so don’t be afraid to grow old. Don’t let the fear of the future paralyze you. Most importantly, get over the small stuff. Having fun is the most important thing in life. After all, nobody makes it out alive anyways, so you might as well have fun being happy with who you are. I’m almost done, so bear with me … Life’s shorter than I am, so don’t regret the choices you make. We’ve all gotten this far and accomplished so much, so I’m truly looking forward to seeing what this amazing class will achieve in the future. I know you all have forgotten most of what I have said and are blocking out my voice- trust me, I am, too. So, I’ll end with a quote from a world-renowned celebrity … Barbie. “Big or small, there’s a difference only you can make.” Congrats, Class of ‘21.
