Congratulations, Class of 2015

Next Tuesday, Fox Lane and John Jay High Schools will hold their annual commencement exercises. Student valedictorians, principals and other distinguished community members will deliver speeches, extend thanks, recognize noteworthy achievements and propel the teen graduates into a promise-filled future with lofty morsels of inspiration.

It’s graduation season, and commencement speakers are serving up their hard-won life lessons at college and high school campuses all across the land. We look forward to hearing what our own local figures will say at Caramoor next week. To get a jump on the ceremonies and a possible preview of the themes that will be sounded, we took a little campus tour of our own. Here are the speech excerpts from a few notable speakers, including a Cabinet member, a punk rocker, and a best-selling author.

On science and innovation: “The first Industrial Revolution supplanted human and animal power with machines powered by fossil fuel. Today, we use the power of two horses to dry our hair. We go to the local market under the pull of hundreds of horses, and fly across our continent with a hundred thousand horses. A second industrial revolution is needed to provide the world’s energy needs in an environmentally sustainable way.”

— Steven Chu, U.S. Secretary of Energy, Washington University

A Name in Lights. Happy Father’s Day, Dad

 By NANCY MCLOUGHLIN

The Record-Review columns that have generated the most email responses for me have been the ones about my dad, chronicling our journey through Alzheimer’s disease over many years. A few weeks ago David McConaughy, my father, slipped away at the age of 82 under the care of hospice. I sat next to his bed and saw a pulse beat a final time. What remained after disease had ravaged Dad’s mind and memory, was still a remarkably healthy physical body with a familiar exterior. It was time. He wanted to let go. He’d forgotten to feel hunger.
Dad is the last male of his line to carry our “un-pronounceable” surname, a man of three daughters and no birth sons. Our family name ended with him. I’d never stopped to actually consider what it might feel like when Dad was no longer there to carry it himself. I can still hear his voice greeting a new person and proudly spelling out the awkward string of letters that was tacked at the end of every important document and piece of paper in my life.
