Elementary School Academy (ESA) and Cook Elementary School finished up their school year on a positive note when Fox 8’s 4 o’clock anchor Natalie Wilson delivered the fifth grade graduation speech.

Wilson, a native of Athens, Ga., was invited by her cousin Sam Davis, who works at ESA and is the founder of the Gentleman’s Quorum, Inc to address the school’s graduating class that will move on to middle school next year.

Wilson told the students that they are at a key point in their lives.

She compared their lives right now to a puzzle. “I’m sure that most of you are still trying to figure things out,” she said. “I remember when I was your age and it wasn’t easy to fit the pieces together. They all seem to go somewhere, but fitting them in at the right place might take some time. You need to take time to make sure that when you put the pieces in place they all fit together well.”

Wilson asked the students to look at many career choices and open themselves up to new experiences to find out their likes and dislikes.
“A lot of what you will find out about yourselves will happen in the next three years in middle school,” she said. “There will be all kinds of new experiences. Make sure the choices you make are good choices. Consider the consequences before you do anything that is different or new. You have to make sure that you don’t compromise the things that your parents have taught you. I’m sure when you finally get all the pieces in place you’re going to find that life is full of adventures and new challenges. Challenge yourself to be exceptional and don’t settle for less than your best. Do your best in all that you choose to do in life.”
