"I urge you to enter this brave new word seeing heroism in humanity and humanity in yourselves," Edsel B. Ford II told the class of 2012 graduates Friday.
As the group's distinguished commencement speaker, Ford–whose grandfather was the namesake of the high school–left students with words of encouragement to find heroes, and to strive to become heroes.
"We all need heroes to be our role models," Ford said. "Tell me who your heroes are and I'll tell you who you are and who you may become."
