Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, The Hill School Class of ’67, speaks on preparation for life

The Hill School (Pottstown, Pa.) recently presented Pennsylvania’s Governor, Dr. Tom Wolf, a member of Hill’s class of 1967, with its Sixth Form Leadership Award. Enjoy this short video of highlights from his speech.

Governor Wolf was selected for this honor by the sixth form (senior) class. The award acknowledges an individual who, through his or her distinguished career and service, demonstrates the value of leadership-building qualities inherent in a Hill School education.

Governor Wolf talked about the benefits of education and offered advice ranging from “approach life like an essay question” — rather than a black and white “true or false” quiz — and to approach life with curiosity, fairness, a willingness to do difficult things, and a desire to live ethically and thoughtfully, without the chance of harboring future regrets.
