Richardson ISD is celebrating Senior Week with online messages from some of its favorite graduates from the past. Yesterday, Lake Highlands High grad Chris Harrison shared a message for the Class of 2020.

“I just wanted to reach out, especially during this crazy time, to say congratulations,” said the award-winning host of ABC’s The Bachelor and its various spinoffs. “I know this hasn’t been the senior year that you’ve been dreaming of and thinking of since you started school, but this is the senior year you got. Don’t let that diminish this incredible accomplishment. You guys are all about to start a new chapter in your lives. Many of you are going to head off to college, maybe join the military or head off to work. Whatever it is, it’s a fresh start in life, and I want to wish you all the very best. Congratulations.

“I’m going to leave you with a little bit of advice my mom gave me – it’s actually a question. What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail? Think about it. You have a fresh start in your life. Go take on the world and do amazing things.”

Harrison is often seen in the Dallas area visiting friends from his days at White Rock Elementary and checking on his Steam Theory Brewing restaurant in the Trinity Groves area. He’ll likely be making trips to Fort Worth in the fall when son Joshua enrolls at TCU.
