You have taken the most important step on your way to a new career. In partnership with Texas State Technical College, you have worked extremely hard to secure a quality education and state-of-the-art technical training. You have persevered and are now poised to take your place in the Texas workforce.
As you look back on all you have accomplished, take time to say thank you to all the people who have supported you along your journey: family, friends, significant others, instructors and staff. Each one has played a part in helping you move to this next chapter in your life.
American philosopher John Dewey once said, “We do not learn from experience … we learn from reflecting on experience.” So take time to reflect on all you’ve learned and the skills you’ve mastered, then celebrate.
On behalf of your TSTC instructors, our staff and myself, I extend our heartfelt congratulations. Now get out there and make us proud!
Robert Wolaver, Acting Provost
