Solicitor tells grads to 'cherish path to your degree'
MAY 20, 2020

Barry Barnette is Solicitor for the 7th Judicial Circuit.
 

Congratulations to the Class of 2020. It is a wonderful time to celebrate your accomplishments and look forward to future opportunities. I realize your celebration is different than you ever envisioned but I encourage you to cherish the path to your degree, the valuable relationships established along the way and the creative celebrations that are occurring.

I challenge you to pursue your dreams and take advantage of any opportunity that allows you to develop your talents. After my high school graduation, I worked hard to be the best chemistry teacher that I could be and later began practicing law. That career decision led me to become a judge and a prosecutor. I quickly discovered the parallels between the legal and education professions. Both careers require communication, research and writing skills. The similarities helped me to make a smooth transition into my career. I hope your choices will lead to success and happiness in the future.

Teachers can use a little help from the community

Great classrooms don’t happen by accident. Teachers across the country work hard to build vibrant, energizing learning environments for their students, which often means everything from microscopes to pipe cleaners, graphic novels to oboes, class pets to field trips and much more.
