WARSAW – NBC Channel 4 co-anchor Cabot Rea provided wisdom and guidance for the seniors who attended the River View High School Baccalaureate Service on Sunday evening, May 18. The event is sponsored by the River View Ministerial Association and is always well attended. Attending seniors are given a certificate and can accept a New Testament Bible from The Gideon’s.

Rea talked about his own life – the many challenges he has faced since speaking at a previous River View Baccalaureate Service. He has lost several friends, including his most dear friend, Mark Tracy, in a motorcycle accident. Rea told the senior’s that life will throw some challenges at you – be tenacious in pursuing your dreams but be sure you know what you are chasing. He talked about his faith and his walk with God.

Rea said, “The world needs you. The world needs your drive, your tenacity, needs your dreams and your intellect. There’s no question. But as you’re moving to that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, I hope you will enjoy the rainbow along the way.”

Rea received a standing ovation and thunderous applause after he sang “In Christ Alone.”
