Graduation is nearly upon us. It’s a time to reflect, celebrate and begin making dreams a reality.

A dozen Eccles School graduate students auditioned to deliver the 2015 graduation address, but we only had room for one on the convocation program.

So, rather than turn everyone away empty-handed, we offered to have students give their speech for posterity’s sake and share them online.

Here, Travis Sorenson, one of the graduation speech finalists, shares his graduation speech and thoughts about his Eccles experience with the Eccles School community.

Thanks, Travis. Congratulations on your degree.
