UPDATE: Administration is letting Lucia speak at graduation! After 1,000+ signatures in just over 12 hours, we thank all of you for your words and support. We could not have done this without you.

Lucia Minniti wants to talk about the late Chris Tully briefly at our graduation ceremony and administration here at Middle Bucks Institute of Technology doesn't want that to happen, so much so that they said that if she does begin to speak about him that she will be escorted off of the stage. This is not to mourn, this is to celebrate a man who had an impact and made a change in all of our lives. This is to celebrate a man who we looked up to as an educator, a professional, and a friend. As of now Lucia has been pulled from her position as a speaker because administration feared her being insubordinate.
DISCLAIMER: Lucia Minniti had no hand in the creation of this document, this document reflects the ideas of those who created and signed it, not the person mentioned above.

    I want to thank everyone who supported the belief that graduation was not only a time to celebrate our accomplishments as graduates, but to honor the memory of our irreplaceable teacher, Mr. Tully. The amount of support I have felt over these past few days is indescribable, and I cannot express how grateful I am to be a part of such a united community. As I delivered my speech, my voice was no longer my own- it was a thousand voices combined. This could not have happened without your support. United and triumphant, this one's for you, Mr. Tully.
