Student speaker Emma Maloney
Cosmetology student Emma Maloney was the student speaker at the F. Donald Myers Education Center's Career and Technical Education Completion and Awards Ceremony on June 15. She joined the other 251 Career and Technical Education students in receiving a completion certificate at the ceremony held at the Saratoga Springs City Center before family and friends.
In her speech, the Corinth High School senior shared some words of wisdom with her fellow students. She quoted a wise man by saying "success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing you will be successful."
As she looked out into a diverse crowd wearing the many colors their home schools, Emma encouraged fellow students to "stay humble, hardworking and engaged. Stay motivated and determined.
She said "our journey is just beginning, so if you look towards our future, take every opportunity that comes to you. Use the skills you used every day these past two years and use them to your advantage.You all took this jump to realize the skills to be more prepared for you future."
Emma closed by saying, "you are all going to be very successful, no matter what you are going for. The world needs kids like us to become adults, to have a positive work ethic to have accomplished so much as high schoolers already. Step out of your comfort zone and conquer the world."
