Chisholm Academy Graduation

Keynote Speech Testimonial

"Chisholm Academy was privileged to have John Hendry as the guest speaker at our Graduation Dinner, June 2019. Chisholm Academy is a Non-Profit Independent School for students with Special Needs and/or Learning Disabilities.

John is a passionate and humorous speaker. He was able to translate his background and personal experiences into a moving speech that engaged both our students, and their families. He emphasized a message of hope, hard work and perseverance that had relevance to every individual present. This evening is the highlight of our school year, and John's message was timely and well received as our Graduating Families move on to the next stage in their growth and development in post secondary goals."
