JUNE 10TH, 2021
Recently, our EAHS graduates strolled through the streets of Elkhorn. They were celebrated with applause and congratulatory shout-outs and with smiles on their faces, they've reached their K-12 finish line. Congratulations, Seniors!

Can you remember what it felt like to be a graduating senior from your hometown high school? Were you eager to run off to college to proclaim independence and seek out opportunities of higher learning? Did you jump right into the workforce in pursuit of career experiences? Did you take the summer off and hike the Appalachian Trail with friends? Perhaps you longed to float around the world and joined the Navy. Either way, after crossing your own K-12 finish line, you planted your feet at a brand new starting point ready to launch, just like the EAHS Class of 2021.

I'm curious, what you would tell yourself if you could offer your youthful self a handful of wisdom? Think about it, what would you say? If I asked you to share it with me, would you? I'll go first...

Who you give your time to, matters!
I heard Darren Hardy once say, "You'll become the combined average of the 5 people you give the most time to." I would remind our graduating Gen Z'ers to choose those five people carefully...because without even realizing it they will mirror and replicate other's actions and attitudes. Ex. cool, cool, cool. Not my typical go-to, but this is now firmly planted in my vocabulary as a result of time and proximity to another human.

Now it's your turn! Take a minute and consider this act. What would you say to yourself? What would you offer up as a nugget of wisdom to the Gen Z graduates? Let's face it, one of those young adults pictured above may some day be the mayor, a senator, or the president. Maybe they will be your doctor, your electrician or your mechanic...what do you want to tell them?
Thanks for sharing, friends!
