Presidential Speeches

Commencement
Charge to the Graduates

May 20, 2012

President Jo Young Switzer

Thank you for choosing Manchester. Your being here has strengthened the College. As you sit here, straining to close this chapter in your lives, I offer four simple challenges:

Express thanks every day. Gratitude changes our perspectives and frees us to live and love more fully.

Keep learning every day. Lifelong learning helps us grow and opens doors you cannot even imagine right now.

Respect differences every day. Our Creator made people and cultures and languages and viewpoints and geography different for a reason.

Remember Manchester College. This College welcomed you when you first arrived. Faculty and staff supported you while you studied here. Now you are a graduate. Be generous with your time and your gifts to keep our doors open to others.
