Inspired by Dream Academy graduation

I really enjoyed attending the fifth commencement exercise for Dream Academy adult high school in Richmond.

To hear the history of this school and how it got started, how far it has come, to where it is now, was just amazing.

I too graduated from an adult high school in South Carolina in 1992 with an Honor Society award and high school diploma. So I know just how all of the students feel.

To the 2017 Dream Academy class: You come from a school that has the word “Dream” in its name. And yes, dreams do come true. So dream big. I did. And I never looked back on life nor had any regrets about anything.

So keep the faith, keep hope alive and most of all, never give up!
