Senior Commencement Speech Guidelines

We will have two Class of 2019 Graduates speak at our Wayzata High School Class of 2019 Commencement. One speaker will be recommended by the students in your senior class, and the second speaker will be recommended by the Wayzata High School faculty. 

Speeches should be 3-5 minutes long. Graduates who are interested in speaking must:

  1. Enlist the help of a Wayzata High School staff member who will act as a mentor.
  2. Prepare the typed speech as a Google document and share it with both Kathy Beatty at and your mentor so they can approve it. Be sure to give Kathy Beatty editing permission so it can be posted in a public folder. This document should be shared no later than 3:30 p.m. on Friday, March 8.

Speeches will be available online for voting March 15 through March 29.

Selected speakers will be notified at the beginning of April. Speakers will also be notified of a date/time (TBD) when/where they will rehearse their speech with Principal Gengler.

Contact Ms. Beatty in the 2nd Floor Administration Office if you have any questions.
