The Director's Promise

My 9 year old daughter has decided that she would like to be in a play at Silver Creek High School.  She "tried out" and will be singing in the children's choir.  We received her info packet yesterday and the following was included.  It is awesome.  I am always looking for stuff like this and the Director's promise was so good, I had to share it here.

My promise to you and your family:

My calling is sure.  My challenge is big.  My vision is clear.  My desire is strong.  My values are solid.  My faith in you is tough.  My mission is urgent.  My purpose is unmistakable.  My direction is forward.  My heart is genuine. 

I refuse to be dismayed, disengaged, disgruntled, discouraged, or distracted.  Neither will I look back, stand back, fall back, go back or sit back. 

I do not need applause, flattery, adulation, prestige, stature or veneration. 

I have no time for business as usual, mediocre standards, small thinking, normal expectations, average results, ordinary ideas, petty disputes, or low vision. 

I will not give up, give in, bail out, lie down, turn over, quit or surrender. 

Let's do great things in excellence.

Alonzo Richmond
Silver Creek High School Theater Department, Director
