âEarning your degree from ITT, a high quality and well respected institution, says quite a bit about your perseverance and dedication. These qualities are crucial ingredients to your long term success. By being here today, youâve shown that you appreciate and recognize this. Youâve also shown you understand that perseverance and dedication are significant to attaining your goals.â
Don also urged them to take advantage of the opportunity that they have created for themselves and to take stock of the sacrifices that they made to get there.
Don began his fifteen minute speech with a quote from Tom Brokaw, the keynote speaker at his own undergraduate graduation from Syracuse University. He ended the speech with a quote from Tim Russert, delivered in a commencement speech he gave in May, only a few weeks before his recent, sudden death.
