CNN’s Carl Azuz: I’ve never felt so welcomed visiting Petoskey
2015 commencement speaker enjoyed his trip to Northern Michigan
CNN News Anchor Carl Azuz has been a commencement speaker at graduations in Atlanta, and a public speaker at national events in Orlando and Los Angeles.
But thanks to an effort from a few seniors at Petoskey High School, the anchor of Student CNN, a 10 minute commercial-free program for middle and high school students, made the trip to Northern Michigan to speak at the graduation ceremony on Sunday. The effort was spearheaded by graduating seniors Delaney Carlson and Madeleine Nemecek, he said.
“They’ve been watching it since their freshman year,” Azuz said. “And last spring they started an effort to try and get me to speak at their commencement ceremony.”
They reached out to Azuz and CNN, asking if he would be interested in speaking at their graduation ceremony.
Azuz has never traveled to Northern Michigan before, let alone the state. His trip took him on flights from Atlanta to Chicago to Traverse City, then a drive up to Petoskey. The time it took him to travel to Petoskey surprised him, saying his total time was longer than it would take to fly to Paris.
He enjoyed the picturesque drive he noted, seeing the rolling farmlands, the historic downtown and the view of Lake Michigan. He said he’d try to bring his wife, a photographer who enjoys images of old barns, rivers and lakes, on his next visit to Michigan.
But as much as he enjoyed the scenery, he was impressed most by the sense of community.
“The students, their parents and grandparents were so warm, it made me feel like I was visiting extended family,” he said. “I’ve never felt so welcomed that warmly by an entire community.”
He expected to have a few students recognize him from his broadcast, but enjoyed his interactions with the adults, who he guessed have probably not have heard of him before.
“I made a joke that the parents were expecting Anderson Cooper, but he was already booked in Charlevoix,” Azuz said.
While giving a speech, Azuz said he tries to keep the message light, fast-paced and humorous. While he also put in some time to brush up on the area, he hopes students heard his message of hard work and dedication to their chosen profession.
“I wanted them to have a sense that in today’s economy, whatever they want to do, whether they immediately enter the workforce, they go to college, or go into the military, they have to earn the things they dream of,” Azuz said.
And for the one piece of advice he wish he had when he graduated high school?
“Worry less and pray more,” he said.
