Dear Parents, Teachers and our Community of Supporters,
It is with great pride that we invite you to the 15th StarShine Academy High School Graduation!
We are pleased to announce our Keynote Speaker: Mr. Thomas Horne
Mr. Horne delivered the first graduation speech for StarShine High School in 2004. Tom Horne served as Arizona’s Attorney General from 2010 to 2014. He served as the elected Arizona State Superintendent of Public Instruction from 2003 to 2011. Tom personally has supported StarShine's mission of saving the world, one student at a time. He advocates for the United States, "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" as a well-known phrase in the United States Declaration of Independence. The phrase gives three examples of the "unalienable rights" which the Declaration says have been given to all human beings by their Creator, and which governments are created to protect." These ideals are the foundation of StarShine Academy.
Mr. Horne is also an accomplished musician and will entertain our audience with a piano solo.
Steve McCarty will also honor and entertain and honor our families.
Students will give their senior speeches. They are always amazing stories about thier lives.
Graduation at StarShine High School is a special evening that recognizes the achievements of our graduates and commemorates a passage in all of our lives. The teachers and administrators join family, friends, and supporters who have worked and given of themselves, to make the graduation ceremony a reality. We want to create a memory of a happy, and solemn moment.
Please come and support these beautiful students as they walk with pride, in front of their audience.
