In 2013 we listened as Andrew gave a speech at his graduation. In 2015 we listened as Jesse and a friend shared a cello rendition of Welcome to the Jungle. And last night, it was Mariana's turn to share her thoughts with her graduating class.
It's a shame that the powers-that-be have not figured out how to make such a special night a little less boring. Name after name after name. There has to be a more creative way to do this. But since the tradition has been around for a very long time and doesn't seem to be changing any time soon, I guess we're stuck with it.
