Campus Celebrates its Graduates

Jul 21, 2014

The Fort Wayne Campus recently held its third graduation ceremony in the auditorium of the downtown location of the Allen County Public Library.  Amid applause and cheering from proud family members and friends, 25 graduates walked across the stage to receive their diplomas.

Senator Dennis Kruse was the keynote speaker.  He motivated the graduates to think about their lives and future according to the “Seven C’s”: Compass - the direction of life; Choices – make wise ones; Clarity – be clear about goals; Confidence – have it in yourself and others; Career – work hard and prepare for opportunities; Conflict – it will happen, work your way through it; and Charity – be sure to give back.

Campus Director Judith Matlin quoted William Butler Yeats: “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”  Judith then urged the graduates to, “Take this fire and light the world up!”
