MEA is proud of every Michigan student, and especially our 2020 graduates. The COVID-19 pandemic has robbed those seniors of many rites of passage, which is why we’re honoring Michigan’s graduates as part of Champions 2020.
MEA members across the state are encouraged to have their local high school valedictorian (or other commencement speakers selected by your school) record their graduation remarks to YouTube and then submit the link to us.
We will share as many speeches as possible below — in these uncertain times, these videos will provide hope, inspiration and a glimpse of our future, thanks to Michigan’s best and brightest graduates.
In the Lansing area, MEA is sponsoring Champions 2020 with a weekly sports show, Press Pass (11 p.m. Sundays on Fox 47), during which area valedictorians are being selected to deliver part of their remarks for broadcast on TV. Links to those recordings are below as well.
