Congratulations Graduates

Good Sunday smiles to everyone. It's graduation time for high school, colleges and universities, and technical colleges. As a matter of fact, the historically black college in Atlanta, Morehouse College is holding its 128th Commencement ceremony today. University President Robert M. Franklin, a 1975 Morehouse College graduate, will deliver his final commencement address at the ceremony.

This is truly a wonderful accomplishment for all the graduates who have successfully completed their studies and now can pursue where the road in life takes them. For high school students, thoughts of furthering their education come fall is wise. Don't let the high cost of attending college these days scare you off. Choose a local college or university as opposed to out-of-state where the fees are higher for those who are not residents. Plus, start out at a two-year college and snag an Associate's degree or trade certification.

The job market is tough for everybody right now and the recent graduate may be feeling even more challenged. Don't give up! Be willing to get your foot in the door at a company by accepting an entry-level position. The manager will notice your efficiency, hard work and willingness to go the 'extra mile'. A new job may open up within the company and a promotion offered to you.

The possibilities are endless so pursue them. Always put your best foot forward and never limit yourself, Congratulations!


  1. So many graduates at many levels starting on the next chapter of their lives!
