NETC graduates encouraged to Make Their Mark

With college degrees, diplomas, and certificates at hand, Northeastern Technical College graduates were urged to find their way and make their mark during the college's annual ceremony held May 12.

SC House Representative, Patricia Henegan was the keynote speaker for ceremony.

"In this chapter of your life, no matter how difficult it may be you must define what it means to yourself to make your mark," said Henegan.

Henegan shared stories with the graduates and audience of NETC alumni who had overcome the odds in order to reach their educational goal and make their mark in their lives and in the community.

"In the next chapter of your life obstacles will become more challenging, but you must find a way. When others put their fears and failures upon you and tell you that you can't do something, prove them wrong by proving creation right," said Henegan. "Find your way. We all have moments in life that we might not be proud of, but don't let those past decisions in life hold you back. Find your way."
