Stamford American International School Singapore celebrated its graduating class in a beautiful, emotionally charged ceremony. The guests saw speeches, musical performances and academic recognitions. A highlight of the ceremony was listening to the guest speaker, Singaporean Dr. William Tan. He is a neuroscientist, Harvard graduate medical doctor, world record holder and Paralympian – a personification of passion and compassion.
The speech provided the graduates with four lessons to take away on their journey beyond school – stretch, adapt, have integrity and serve. After his speech, few eyes were dry in the audience as this incredible man received a standing ovation.
