Hastings valedictorians get ready to enter the world
Economic issues, world conflict, environmental problems. What kind of world are new high school graduates entering into? For valedictorians from Hastings High School - a world with a very bright future.
We hear from three of those valedictorians, in their own words, in this edition of Celebrate Youth.
"I'm excited. I really am. I mean, the future you never know what's going to happen but there's always opportunities for great things.
I want to be a doctor of infectious diseases and, I just, I want to help people," said Jaime DeTour. "I got all these expectations so I guess my biggest worry is that things aren't going to live up to my expectations that some things aren't going to work out and I'm going to be really disappointed. We really do have the power to make a change. Even though it may not seem like it like you may not have that power it's there you just got to find it."
"I'm pretty excited. Mostly I just want to get out there and start doing the things that I want to do. I haven't really thought about how hard its going to be to get a job. It's just one of those things you can't really. I want to be in robotics and you can't really do anything about the jobs that are available out there. I just think it's going to be cool to live in the future," said Evan Beachly. "Science fiction novelists try and predict the future and they predict things that we haven't come up with but we've created things that they haven't predicted so you just can't really tell what the future is going to hold."
"I watch the news and there's a lot of crazy stuff going on, but I'm ready. I'm definitely ready to move on to the next part of my life.
I want to be a general physician," Mikayla Schultz said. "I'm a little bit worried about my mom. She's going to be in a house full of boys. I hope where my weaknesses are I hope they aren't things that are going to cripple me I hope they are things that I can overcome.
I think we have the power to overcome anything that is thrown our way no matter what happens. Things that shock our lives almost always tend to be smaller than what's going on as a whole in the country so I think that we can overcome whatever comes our way."
