Congressman Brian Higgins, a member of the U.S. House of Representatives serving New York’s 26th congressional district, noted in his undergraduate commencement speech the importance of a college education and encouraged graduates to continue to learn.
“You are graduating from an institution that has prepared you well for a new beginning in your life,” said Higgins. “As you start your next chapter, I urge you to keep learning and to be a lifelong learner in an ongoing, self-motivated pursuit of knowledge.”
Graduate commencement speaker Robert M. Chur, president of Chur Companies of New York, Inc., and the Chur Family Foundation, praised the graduates for acquiring the “skills, knowledge, and experience that will serve you well professionally on your road to success. The world has many lessons to teach you and there will be a few bumps along the way. I know you possess the strength and fortitude to move on and move ahead.”
