Garland who you probably better know as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz said.

On Stephanie. Lomas, vice. President, education. From, the Students Union of, the university, of central lancashire to. Respond, on behalf of all those awarded. Today. Vice. Chancellor, Pro. Vice Chancellors. Graduates. Academics. Moms. Dads. Grandparents. Spouses, children's. Partners. Siblings. Friends. I think, I've covered everyone there, my. Name is Stephanie Lomas and I'm vice president education. At UConn su it. Is my honor and extreme. Pleasure, to. Speak to you today on behalf of students, and to. Students. So. You did it all. The, blood sweat. Tears. Have. Finally, paid off and, now you're, here to celebrate your achievements. With your loved ones and your uclan, family, and. Whilst you'll all be sat there thinking, what. Happens now I want. You to take a moment breathe. And think. About what has happened you. Said, yes, you, heavily. Invested. And believed in yourself and, came, to you clan full. Of unrealized, potential, not. Knowing your way around and, certainly, not aware of the livesey to Vern an assault course. But. You arrived you, took, your first step into the unknown and just. Said yes the. Opportunities. Offered to, you. You've. Worked hard. Whilst. University, isn't all about the assignments, and exams we, can safely say that at times it, feels, like it those. Late-night early, mornings in the library, the. Academic, advisor meetings. The Monday 9:00 a.m. tutorials. The. Wiser sessions. Odd extension. Checking. The Turnitin, report and, the countless, hours of working towards, the end goal because. No one else was going to do it for you, you've. Worked hard for your success. You've. Made change. Whether. You were the captain of a sports team a committee. Member of a society, a volunteer. A course, rep a school. President, or whether, you just enjoyed, the experience, of university, in your own way you. Will have made change. You. Will have helped, positively. Shake someone's. University. Experience.
Either. By, helping, them make the team, making. A friend in a society, help. Better a course. Created. A big idea or, by. Simply asking them if they were okay. You've. Made someone's experience. Better and may, change. But. That. Doesn't stop here, your. Degree is the driving, license for the ride of your life, bear. With me on this metaphor, it does make sense. Sometimes. The. Car isn't what you wanted. But. It's, the car you need at the time and, is a stepping, stone towards, that Lamborghini. Sometimes. You. Might stall. But. You know how to overcome, it because, you've stalled at university, before and, sometimes. The, car might break down. But. You now have loved, ones and a huge UCLan fan to, help push you up the hill until you are running again. Continue. To say yes work. Hard, and make, change. Don't. Be scared of the direction, you drive in because. In the words of a modern-day philosopher. Rihanna. Baby. You. Got the keys now. Shut up and drive. On. Behalf of all the students here today I would. Like to give thanks to the University in, Union staff for, all of their hard work from. Estates to, educators, catering. Staff to chief executives. Potential. Is realized, with your support, because. You believe in social, mobility and widening, participation. You. Agree with us that, education is, a right not, a privilege that. All can thrive in and, finally. I'd. Like to take this opportunity to, thank the guests, to our celebration here, today. You've. Also said, yes, you've. Worked hard and made. Change. Which, is the reason you are here today because, you. Impacted, upon the lives of students, and on, behalf of the graduates, here that, will either probably. Forget to say it or will, be incapable of saying it later, thank. You, congratulations. To, each and every one of you the, Graduate class of 2019. Now. Go out and celebrate, in the way that you know best. Today. Is of course a day of great, celebration, for. Everyone here, and. We. Need to celebrate in, an, appropriate. Way. Family. And friends. That. A good photo opportunity coming, up now so. You might like to have your camera's ready, could. I ask all the graduates. As, you know our to stand. And. Take. Off your mortarboards. Which. I'm sure comes as a relief to some of you. In. A moment, I'm. Going. To ask you, to waive your. Mortarboards. And. As. Is the tradition at. Uclan. You. Must waive them as vigorously, as you can in, recognition.
Of All your hard work and your, achievements. However. Do. Keep a tight hold of your mortarboard, as, it. Is now yours. To, keep and take, home with you so. On. A count, of three I want. You to wave your mortarboard in the air and give, a hearty, cheer, then. We will all follow. With. A further three. Cheers. So. One, two, three. Hip-hip. Hey. Hey. You. Got yours of you yeah. As. We bring this ceremony, to a close, I would. Like to thank everyone, who has, been involved, in making today, such, a happy, and a, memorable occasion and, thank. You for coming and sharing, this special day with the, university. Community. The. Platform, party will now, leave, the stage and. Graduates. You, will shortly, be processing, out of the hall, a, university. Uh sure will prompt, you when. Your row is ready, and you need to stand up. Please. Make sure you, take all your belongings with you. Guests. Please, remain seated. Until the. Students, have left the hall, you, will then be guided, by the usher. And be. Able to rejoin, your graduate, in the, foster building, thank. You.
