George Birkbeck, who introduced, free classes, and Mechanics, for Glasgow's, tradesmen, -. The world's first oilman, James parafin, young -. The missionary, and Explorer, David Livingstone. -. John Logie Baird and Lord Reef whose. Work and television, brought us visual, marvels, that 'they could have dreamtone. Under. The present day we look to deem Alicia Angelini, a pioneer, in Scottish, justice, as the country's first female Solicitor. General and laters, first female, Lord Advocate and to, Sir Tom Hunter one, of them was successful, entrepreneurs, in Scottish history and, a, philanthropist.

By the seeds, that you plant. To. Reach this point in your life study, each, of you will have travelled a different journey for. Some the paths may have been relatively easy for. Others much. More difficult but. I'm certain, of one thing none. Of you would be here without the active support of your family, and friends, they've. Picked you up when you've been down they've. Encouraged, you when you needed it and they're, here to support you once again today, proudly, walking, watching, as you cross the stage with. Broad smiles, and the, odd tear, in the odd eye I noticed. They. Are celebrating, today. Not. Just because you're almost off the payroll but. I dare say there's, an element of that. Theater. They are pleased for you because you carry with you their. Hopes and dreams their. Confidence. That you can make this a better world, for. The past half hour or so their applause has rung in your ears I'd, like now to invite our graduates, to show their appreciation for. The support of the family and friends. Now.
