Hayfield SS Student Named State Winner of Graduation Speaker Contest

June 12, 2020

Hayfield Secondary senior Alexandra Wong has been named a state winner of U.S. Senator Tim Kaine's "Everybody's the Graduation Speaker" contest that recognized the top graduation speeches from graduating Virginia high school seniors. Wong wrote the speech back in January intending to present it at Hayfield's in-person graduation ceremony. When the ceremony was cancelled, she realized the advice in her speech is still applicable in these circumstances, so she submitted it and won.  Her speech is available to view online.  Contact Amy Ferguson at @email.
