We're almost there almost look, at all of the stem people. Alright, I'm back. So. As, our, stem graduates and. Incredible. Brilliant, graduates, I must say walk across the stage there's, three things about them that I think all of you should know, every. Single one of these individuals. Are the most brave. Persistent. And creative. People that you will ever meet in your entire life. Why. Are they brave they're. Brave because they've achieved something. Great because they had the courage to go after this opportunity. Second. Every, single one of them is persistent, they simply, refuse to give up I guarantee. You every, single one of them has failed and, gotten. Frustrated. Probably. Said a couple of naughty words and even. Thought about giving up but. With goals so strong, their failures and frustration. Turned. Into motivation, and guess what they. Persisted, because here they are. Finally. Every. Single one of them is creative, what do I mean by creative. Let, me read you one of my favorite quotes by Mary Lou cook. Creativity. Is experimenting. Growing. Taking. Risks, breaking. Rules making. Mistakes and having. Fun. Kudos. To all of you incredibly, brilliant brave. Persistent. And creative, stem graduates go. Forth create. Innovate. And make our world a better place and. I'm. Gonna apologize because I'm really horrible, at last names so if I really ruin it wink at me and just give me a thumbs up okay all, right Stephanie. And Tony.

And in, recognition of the business faculty in the room thank you we just we. Just can't have a receiving line yeah. All. Right so. Before I get started with, with your names I want to do a couple things first. So. First of Anthony. Has Anthony mentioned we have two distinct groups in the room who I would like to recognize. So. Will the associate, deans and faculty please. Rise, all. Associate. Dean's and faculty in the room please right. So. I still have something to say so. These. Are the folks and, please you know you may know the faces you might know the names but. These are the folks who over, the last few years have. Fought, for you have. Supported. You have. Fought with you in. Some cases and. Who. Have done everything in their power their work day and in many times night and weekends. To bring you to this point so please. Let's. Celebrate your associate your associate Dean's and your faculty. Thank. You. The. Second group I'd like to. Recognize. Before. We move on is, if. You would look out into the crowd and see if you can find or see, that. Loved one the family or the friend or the, family and friends that's showed up here with you and have been there supporting you along the way I think this is a great time to thank, them and congrats. For. Being a support and helping you get here today. Thank. You. So. I was. Dude. Don't, you hate it when someone tries. To sound really intellectual, and then. They then use like some kind of like sports, metaphor, as an, analogy for up some point in life that they're trying to make yeah. Me too. So. I used to run the. 100, and 200 eights to run track and I, was alright I wasn't, you know I wasn't great I wasn't bad but then I had a cathartic moment one. Day one of my coaches, said to me he said dr.. Wyatt no she's kidding he said yawn. You. Know running, the race itself, is actually the easy part. So. The hard part comes, way before, you step up to the line. It's. The hard work that you put in it's a sacrifice it's, the practice, it's, the eating healthy it's the eating vegetables. When you want to eat a hamburger right it's giving up time partying. It's giving, up time doing. Things that you, would much rather do, to, put into work so that when you get to the race you're, ready. Do. I need to say more no. But, I will. So. You know, about, you. Know about the hard work, right. That's, why you're standing here you know about the sacrifice. You. Know that, there were days where you would much rather have been at the club with your friends, right, then. Studying. And doing, exams, and discussion, posts, but. You did it anyway so. You, put in the time and so, I I what, I'm saying is that today, you shouldn't think of today on the next few days as, an. End, rather. You should think of it as a beginning as a. Start, and so. With that in mind if you've put in the time you're, prepared, and so, you.
Should Walk up to that starting, line confidently. Knowing, that you're ready to run the race. Congratulations. Sophia. Sang, gonna. Narrow. Raymond-james. Amendola. Melody. Jan, Anderson. Kendra.
