“Hello and welcome to the Honors Event.” Bernard began, “I am so glad everyone is here tonight to help celebrate ten amazing students.
“They have been chosen for their courage, their compassion, their strength and their need to succeed. And succeed they all did. Tribute tonight goes to the following students: Carrie Azle, Ben Bulliet, Sarah Dawn, Matthew Foremen, Jessica Guller, Michael Hirsch, Holly Marie, Trey Parke, and Charlie Summers. Thank you and enjoy.” Bernard stepped off the long stage as the lights were dimmed.
A video tribute began first. Each student had talked on camera a while back in school and now was the time to show it. After that, Bernard walked back on the stage to present the awards. And this is where it gets bad.
