Sanders to Deliver High School Commencement Remarks at CVU

Posted by  Thursday, 01 Jun 2017 04:06 PM

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will deliver the commencement remarks at two Vermont high schools in the coming weeks.

Sanders will deliver the South Royalton High School commencement address on June 10 in South Royalton. Sanders will also be the commencement speaker during Champlain Valley Union High School’s graduation on June 16. On Monday, Sanders will also deliver video remarks to graduating high school students at St. Johnsbury Academy.

Sanders plans to share with Vermont’s graduating seniors the importance of getting involved in our democracy.

“What is most important is that young people find their own voice and that they use that voice. That is what their education is all about,” Sanders said. “That is the essence of democracy: an informed citizenry getting involved and debating thoughtfully and respectfully the issues facing our country and the world.”

Earlier this month, Sanders delivered the commencement remarks to students graduating from Johnson State College and Lyndon State College.
