Sample Graduation Script

Preparation, organization and collaboration are the keys for a successful event.  Based from the gathered data, I made an outline to guide the host for a smooth flow of the program.

Take note of the following:

  • There should always be program guidelines and script to be used in any events for a clear transition;
  • There should be appropriate adjectives prepared in introducing the speakers.

For the speakers & hosts:

  • Establish eye contact with the audience as often as possible;
  • Voice should be well modulated (not squeaky, low or loud);
  • Be optimistic and smile from the heart. =)

May this script be helpful enough.

Prelude & Processional Music



  • Good morning everyone, I’m (NAME), the (POSITION & DEPARTMENT), I’ll be your host for today.
  • I’m delighted to be here to our 2009-2010 ­­Commencement Exercise.

    Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying
    your blog. I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any points for newbie blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.

    hey there and thank you for your info – I have certainly picked up anything
    new from right here. I did however expertise a few technical
    issues using this website, as I experienced to reload the site lots of times
    previous to I could get it to load properly. I had been wondering if your
    web hosting is OK? Not that I am complaining,
    but slow loading instances times will often affect your placement in google and can
    damage your high quality score if advertising and marketing
    with Adwords. Anyway I am adding this RSS too my e-mail and could
    look out for a lot more of your respective fascinating content.
    Ensure that you update this again very soon.
