“Thank you for your grit.”

I was so honored that the Community College of Vermont invited me to be the keynote speaker for their 2016 Commencement, which took place a few weeks ago.

Graduates came from diverse backgrounds and represented all 14 Vermont counties, 12 other states, and 18 countries worldwide.

I was so inspired by all of the students, over half of whom were the first in their family to graduate from college. Every college graduation means something to the graduates and their families, but this one was different from any I have ever attended. It really meant something.  I hope you enjoy this message I delivered to them.

Thanks for listening,
Just Mark First Name
