Morristown High School is like a bookshelf with many volumes, Valedictorian Victoria Lin tells fellow members of the Class of 2012, survivors of “one hurricane, one tornado, one electrical fire and one food fight.”  (Video above.)

Tori, who is bound for Princeton this fall, asks three things of classmates:

  • Be Bold. “Stand with sound and fury…lead by example and with passion.”
  • Be Kind. “The sun not only rises for you, but for others…You can not only make a difference, but be the difference.”
  • Be Happy. “There is no perfection, only life….Family and friendship matter” more than grade point averages and earnings.
