I was invited to become the commencement speaker at Greenville Technical College by Dr. Thomas E. Barton, Jr., the longest- serving president of a two-year college in the nation.
After a year-long relationship was established in discussion with the president, faculty and staff at the technical college, my foundation developed an experiential entrepreneurship curriculum to offer to local, community-based organizations off- campus.
I was honored to address the thousands of accomplished graduates and their family, friends and stakeholders that played an important part of the graduates’ achievements.
At Greenville Tech, my message to all in attendance included advice on finding their “area of excellence”.
The faces of the future were proud of the smiling faces of a true “melting pot”. This “new majority” with diverse skills, backgrounds, motivation and mentality will choose to invent their own future gained while attending college.
