Congratulations to all of our graduating seniors! Whether you are going on to another school or you are starting your journey into the world of work, I hope that you will all continue to seek growth and continue to learn in this period of opportunity. You are the designers of your own future and you are the future of our world. When I graduated from high school - in the preceding century - one of my coaches told me I should always remember I was an example for those who followed me in school. I wish I had paid more attention to him but I had no idea what he was talking about and I don't think I cared. So when I suggest that our graduates might remember to be a good example for their younger brethren I am not offended if they laugh at me. While we are on the subject of "example setting", let's all be good examples to our neighbors by being courteous and considerate of them. We should all appreciate that these are abnormal times and may call for some additional patience with each other these days. Be safe, be careful and stay healthy. Thanks for the opportunity to serve.
Harold Itkin, IHCA President
