    Hi Ma’ am Cel! Your blog post is very helpful 🙂 Gonna use this for our commencement exercises, just want to say thank you for this. More power and Godbless! ❤️

      Good luck to your hosting. Keep practising.

    Poor choice of words. Uniformity and simplicity may have been a better approach than using words such as “unbeatable School Division Superintendent” or “arousing valedictory address”. The use of highfalutin words will only make your speech appear pretentious. See what I did there? Please improve this.

    1. maricelmar says:

      Thank you sir. I think I agree with your suggestion.
