VIDEO: Hudson High School Commencement Address

The video of my commencement address to Hudson High School’s Class of 2017 is available for viewing. It has been praised by those in attendance and those who have since watched it online. No matter your age or where you are in your life, watch and be inspired. Then share it with others.

To skip to the speech, begin at 25:30. The entire graduation, however, was well-done and a joyful celebration worth watching.


  1. As always, well said, Adrienne!!! Totally enjoyed your address to the Hudson graduates!! Andrew will be starting the twelfth grade in September and I believe this is a great way to set the bar for his last year of high school. I will be listening to this again as he hears it for the first time. Some of what you bring forth I have told Andrew for years, but teenagers sometimes hear better when the person speaking is not their mom 🙂 Love you bunches, keep up the great purpose that you have pushed toward and I am confident you will continue to do so.!

  2. Thank you, Ms. Catherine!

    First, I cannot believe Andrew will already be a senior. Say what! Yes, hearing the same thing from someone else sometimes does the trick–as if they never heard it before, right? 🙂

    Second, I’m so glad you took the time to listen, and I appreciate your feedback and encouragement. You are always a blessing.

    Love you!
