Both the guests spoke at the gathering about the realities of the world in which they are entering and potential roles they may play in making this world a better place to live. They also reminded the Tibetan youth the special responsibilities that they have, i.e. to keep their language and culture alive.
The speeches were followed by a wonderful group song by the Staff Band to honor the graduates. The function ended with photo sessions of the graduates with the guests.
