Commencement Messages: Education Starts, Not Ends, with the Diploma

Wright L. Lassiter

The largest room in any house is the room for improvement. Life is a series of progressions; we graduate from one level to the next, and with each level we experience not an end, but a beginning of the next part of a life or an experience. Whatever life brings it important to remember life is a journey-keep studying and learning. Commencement Messages offers a collection of addresses delivered to graduating classes at high schools, community colleges, and four-year colleges and universities by the educator, Dr. Wright L. Lassiter Jr. This collection of addresses spans the career of an educator who has served as president of three colleges, and now serves as the chancellor of the seven-college Dallas County Community College District. While all of the materials in his addresses are for the most part his own work, he does not claim total originality in what he has done. He acknowledges his indebtedness too many sources, known and unknown to him. From the importance of "Education and Values" to his challenge to "Dare to Follow Your Dreams," Dr. Lassiter's inspiring messages offer words of wisdom that have opened the door to the future for many graduates over the years.
