Cumberland High School in Rhode Island, USA, is in the hopes to get Ellen DeGeneres to speak at our graduation ceremony in June. We are aiming for 50,000 signatures in order to persuade her and show how much we want her to be a speaker at the ceremony.
Also make sure you spread this onto to anyone else you know!!!!!!
Dear Ellen DeGeneres,
Our goal is to acquire 50,000 signatures in showing of how much we want you to speak at our high school graduation. In a school of 1,600 with 300 of those students in our graduating class we have a long road ahead of us. But we are set to achieve our goal and in doing so persuade you to come to Rhode Island and speak. We love you Ellen and after seeing what a amazing speech you gave at Tulane University we're hoping for the same. We may not be your hometown be we've got enough drive and pride to want you here in our little town.
