DPHS traditionally features a few student speakers at this event. Any senior interested in giving a speech at the 2022 Graduation Ceremony is welcome to submit a speech draft for consideration. A committee will listen to all speeches submitted and determine which 2-4 students will speak at the ceremony.
Graduation 2024 will be on Thursday, June 13th and we traditionally have a few student speakers at this ceremony. Therefore we are inviting all graduating seniors to submit a speech to potentially be considered for the 2024 graduation ceremony.
The following are guidelines to help you craft your graduation speech:
Speeches should be ~3 minutes long.
They must be your original work.
Speeches should be typed and double spaced.
Speeches must be emailed to Sienna van Alphen no later than Monday, May 6th at 4:00pm.
You will receive confirmation that your speech was received and further information for next steps.
Graduation practice is MANDATORY. It is expected that graduates are on time, follow the directions given and will not leave the rehearsal until dismissed. Work schedules, Dr.'s appointments and other obligations will not be excused. In case of illness, please contact the administrator for seniors prior to practice. Failure to attend graduation practice will terminate students participation in the ceremony.
