Tim Stevens asked each Carolina Christian Academy graduate to compare him or herself to a fined-tuned violin.
That instrument is worthless if it goes years and years without being touched. But if it’s played for others to hear, it will have served its purpose.
Stevens urged the graduates to live their lives as if they were that violin.
Stevens, administrator at Grace Christian School in West Columbia, gave the commencement address at Carolina Christian Academy’s 2010 graduation, held May 21 in CCA’s gymtorium.
