for the announcement and information on Dr. Sabastian.
To quote an article in the Press Register:
In his commencement speech, retired USA earth sciences professor Glenn Sebastian said the growth of the 44-year-old university has been "phenomenal" and congratulated students on receiving their diplomas.
"It is a document of honor, of privilege and power," Sebastian said. "But it also indicates an enormous responsibility on your part."
Sebastian encouraged graduates to fight pollution, violence, illiteracy and homelessness in the community.
"You received much at the University of South Alabama," Sebastian said. "Now you must go forward and make the world a better place."
So for me, having this community will hopefully be a small part of making the world a better place.
One of the people Sebastion quoted in his speech was Dr. Seuss from the last story Dr. Seuss wrote and published before his death named Oh, The Places You'll Go
. Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So...get on your way!
I loved that Dr. Sebastian made this quote in his speech, how inspiring these few words are. I hope this will inspire you as well.( Oh, The Places You'll Go text by Dr. SeussCollapse )
