Dunwoody High School’s notable 1992 graduate, Ryan Seacrest, had a message for this year’s graduating class.
In a video shared by the school on Facebook, Seacrest congratulated this year’s graduating class at his metro Atlanta alma mater.
From his “home kitchen studio in Los Angeles,” Seacrest said he had been thinking of the graduates.
“You started your career at DHS four years ago and who would have ever imagined that it would culminate in a moment like this,” Seacrest said. “You all deserve credit for your achievements, for your hard work. You deserve to be saluted and so we are here to salute you and congratulate you on this graduation.”
“Some of the greatest innovations come from difficult times. You can be our leaders to create those innovations to bring us back to a world we can all connect with,” Seacrest said in the video. “I wish I was there, so a virtual high five and hug. Congratulations to the Dunwoody High School class of 2020.”
Seacrest also shared a message with the broader graduating class of 2020 in the iHeartRadio podcast, “Commencement,” which features messages to this year’s graduates from prominent people.
In his 10-minute remarks on the podcast, Seacrest talked about living life with passion and finding a positive outlook.
Seacrest, co-host of “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and “American Idol” also recently announced he would donate $1 million to feed and house first responders battling the coronavirus pandemic.
