More than 80 graduates received certificates and associate degrees at Texas State Technical College's Spring 2018 Commencement held Friday, April 27, at the Abilene Convention Center.
Rick Denbow, provost of TSTC in Abilene, Breckenridge, Brownwood and Sweetwater, began the ceremony with a tribute to TSTC President Emeritus Homer K. Taylor of Sweetwater, who died earlier in the day at age 83.
"He would be extremely happy for you to celebrate the success of the students," Denbow told the audience.
Texas Rep. Stan Lambert, R-Abilene, was the keynote speaker. He told those gathered about his first job as a 9-year-old washing windshields at his father's full-service filling station. He said it was a great experience in public relations.
"You can't replace kindness in the world," Lambert said.
Lambert said for graduates to be successful, they need to do four things: have something to do, someone to love, something to believe in and something to hope for.
"What do you hope is the next chapter in life?" Lambert asked the graduates.
