‘What advice would you give this year’s graduates?’
“Keep going, continue to go to school, you need it these days. It’s kind of rough if you don’t have it. You can’t stop right there, you got to keep going.”
“Once you finish high school … go back to school [to] learn something you can do … real good because there will be difficult times ahead.”
“Please stay in school and get your education. Because that’s the only thing that’s gonna get you through life, is education.”
“Follow your dreams, be your own leader, don’t be a follower and always go for the gusto.”
