Stay focused and never give up. Almost 600 CCV students were given that advice on Saturday when the College conferred associate degrees on members of the Class of 2015.
“Life, like so many valuable lessons, will not come easily or without its own set of challenges,” said student speaker Ashlee Brady-Kelly. “There may be times where it would be easier to succumb, than to thrive; to conquer. However I encourage you, no I beg you, please do not give up on yourself and never, never give up on your goals. It is in the most trying times that knowledge is gained and strength earned.”
