2016 Marks 144th Graduating Class
(Cloverport, Ky.—) Representative Dean Schamore delivered the commencement address at the graduation ceremony for the 144th graduating class of Frederick Fraize High School last Friday, May 20th. Representative Schamore reflected on his own high school graduation from Breckinridge High School in 1987, when he made the decision to enter the United States Navy.
“What I learned from that time in my life is that the United States of America is the best country in the world,” Representative Schamore told the graduates. “We are the true leaders of the world. It is our moral obligation to stand up for righteousness whenever possible. And to help those who cannot help themselves. And to help those in our country who are in need.”
Representative Schamore encouraged the graduates to set goals. “If you have a goal, no matter what obstacles arise, you will work through them and reach your goal. It’s also ok to dream a little. To have a dream of doing something great, something important. It is within your reach if you make the right choices for your life and work hard. Even if you fail, get back up and start again.”
