When graduating senior Fiona Beaton was in eighth grade, her social studies teacher, Matt Kirwan, passed on a piece of wisdom that still guides her today: "People judge you within the first 30 seconds of meeting you," he told her.
That thought both scared and challenged her over the past five years, she told the 204 Scotia-Glenville graduates and their friends and families gathered for the 107th Scotia-Glenville High School graduation at Procter's Theater today.
"Scotia-Glenville has given us all the tools to use that 30 seconds to our advantage if we choose to," she told the graduates minutes after being introduced by Kirwan. "Show respect, acceptance and tolerance in our future interactions with others, for they will judge you in the first 30 seconds. Use those 30 seconds carefully - it could change your life."
