Speech delivered by Adeyemi Olalemi, President, Change Ambassadors Network at the Valedictory Service of Comprehensive Senior High School, Alapere on the 10th July 2014
Vice Principal (Administration),
Vice Principal (Academy),
Members of Staff,
It is a great honour to address you today and to celebrate with you on a significant day as this, for myself and other alumni in Change Ambassadors Network, it is a glorious return to our alma mata.
On behalf of every member in Change Ambassadors Network, I sincerely congratulate the school management, members of staff and most importantly the graduating students.
Permit me to use this great opportunity to introduce to you Change Ambassadors Network (CAN), this is an organization initiated by vibrant old students of this great school, the organization goal is to breed new generation of youths who will change themselves to change the world.
This is the goal we are pursuing doggedly with some of our programmes, last year, October 30, we were here to empower and award students of this school who attained academic excellence. The programme was tagged ¡°back to base¡± empowerment and we promise to make this an annual programme for Students of this school. So expect CAN to be in your school again in October for ¡°Back to base 2014¡±
As an organization committed to developing students and youths, Change Ambassadors Network will be ready to assist every graduate of this school with admission into Higher Institutions of learning, help secure internship in different companies and empower them through skills acquisition programmes.
I urge all graduating students to press forward and not be complacent with graduating from secondary, as a matter of fact, our society does not reckon with SSCE holders, you have to go beyond that, you must strive to get a University degree, become a Ph.D. Holder, a Professor and become captains of industry.
It is a world of limitless opportunities; the world will stand aside for anyone who knows where he is going. Never be a victim of comfort zone syndrome, this is not a destination; it is the starting point.
No matter whom we are, our background, our environment; no matter where we come from; we can do something to change the world for the better.
