Congratulations to my alma mater @Morehouse1867
on performing its 134th commencement and sending almost 400 newly-minted scholars and leaders out into the world, prepared to make a difference.
Special shout-out to commencement speaker and my good friend @RepSanfordBishop
, you brought down tha House (pun intended)! One quotable from his challenge to the graduates: “Your Morehouse experience has prepared you—your academic preparation, your discipline, your persistence, your faith and your commitment to humanity. You truly are prepared and have the tools to change this world.”
President Dr. David Thomas also offered choice words to mark the occasion: “I fervently believe that we at Morehouse College stand at a moment of beginning. A moment to celebrate our new vision, powered by and sustained by, the guiding spirit of our mission and its core values as we give life to new aspirations, as we blaze trails to new paths of service, and as we move forward with renewed energy to engage in an exciting future.”
Becoming a Morehouse Man was easily one of the best decisions of my young life, and the dividends continue to pile up almost two decades after matriculating through her hallowed halls. Congratulations to the Class of 2018, may you rise to carry on our institution's long held tradition of leadership, scholarship and service.
