Message from the Provost
Graduates, remember this day!
From the day of your birth to the day you walked through the doors of TSTC, your entire life has prepared you in one way or another for this pivotal, monumental moment.
What you have earned is not to be underestimated. Your sacrifice, your determination, your blood, sweat and tears have earned you credentials that belong to you and you alone. This is the day that represents the culmination of all your lifelong efforts!
For some of you, this will be your first time to enter the professional marketplace, having begun your journey with TSTC directly out of high school. For others, this is a reinvention of yourself — “You 2.0” — in that you have upskilled or earned an entirely new set of skills after working for years in the industry. For others still, this is the fulfillment of a lifelong dream of achieving college credentials. Regardless of the incentive, you have achieved the goal, and we herald your success and celebrate all of your accomplishments.
Graduates, now begins your next challenge. With this new opportunity, you are in the driver’s seat. You are the makers and shapers of the future of America and beyond. Graduates, find your passion and embrace it — be the architects of the future. You have the opportunity to build, create, prosper and provide for yourself and your loved ones, and to see your wildest dreams come to fruition.
Be proud! Be strong! Be vigilant! Be courageous! Be kind! Love, laugh, and leave a legacy!
