Well, it’s that time of year and the politicos and celebs are out in force, each earning their honorary degree in reading speeches written by their publicists. OK, so maybe they really do write their own speeches. Whatever. The fact is that some of them are wonderful, inspiring, and a great resource for my Speech students who are entered in the Oratorical Interpretation category.
I thought I’d start a post that chronicles some of the most awesome ones as they trickle in this graduation season, as well as present to you all some of my favorites from years gone by. I’ll add to it periodically, and if you read or hear of one that you think needs to be recognized, please send it my way.
Enjoy, and happy graduation.
More to come…
