Nawili! Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe keeps students in place during lengthy grad speech
Not all graduation guest speakers come prepared with written speeches. Some of them just speak from the heart.
Such was the case with Ako Bicol Rep. Rodel Batocabe who took inspiration from the moment to speak extemporaneously.
But the politiko seemed to have enjoyed sharing his experiences too much when he visited the Bascaran National High School because he spoke for more than 45 minutes.
It was the longest graduation speech he had ever delivered, and laughingly admitted he had gotten carried away.
But he believes the graduates were able to absorb the inspiring stories he shared, based on their facial expressions.
After all, they didn’t have anywhere else to go!
“At the Bascaran National High School graduation ceremonies, i spoke extemporaneously for more than 45 mins, the longest grad speech i delivered. I got carried away relating an inspiring story one after the other that I forgot that it was already too long,😂😂😂.Nonetheless, am still confident that the graduates still absorbed what I said based on their facial expressions and yes I reminded them repeatedly “na ibutang sa alimantak ninda.”🤑😜 ,” he posted.
