Graduate says wisdom can halt nuclear threat
SAN MARCOS — A Southwest Texas State University graduating senior warned her classmates during graduation ceremonies that the threat of nuclear war must be eliminated. She said that education has given her and other students the knowledge and understanding to care for the future.
“We all must share the responsibility of removing this ever-present danger (of nuclear wan from our lives.'’ said Laura Kerr while delivering the student salutation at the Dec 20 ceremonies at the university “For at any time it could destroy everybody and everything we love, along with all that we have worked for and all of our dreams.’’
Kerr said that education is part of the answer to a world free from fear of nuclear destruction. “During the course of our education, we have learned much about the world.” she said. “By better understanding the world in which we live, we’ve become more empathetic to its needs
“Only through ourselves can we choose what is meaningful in our lives, but our education can provide us with a methodical approach to the attainment of this wisdom •
Knowledge once gained casts light beyond its immediate boundaries.” she said.
Kerr graduated with a degree in physics. She maintained a 3.95 grade point average on the 4.0 scale.
Ruben Escobedo, a San Antonio businessman and chairman of the Texas State University System Board of Regents, delivered the keynote address to more than 1,000 graduating students.
Self confidence and personal pride are essential for success and a worthwhile life, he told the second largest graduating class in Southwest Texas State University’s history
Escobedo, a certified public accountant. publicly declined to discuss subjects such as the economy of the state and nation, the nuclear threat, the quality or lack of it in education, foreign policy or the federal and state budget He said those subjects were “too complex" for the graduating ceremonies.
Instead, he discussed personal values and the importance of family and nation
"As you start on your professions.” he noted, "your confidence will be tested We must not lose that pride of
self that would allow you to accept a lesser opinion of yourself. There will be trying times. Many .”
An important element of selfconfidence is personal pride, Escobedo told the graduates. “Act and look the part. Be proud of your work and profession and remember that to produce good work takes Just a little more effort than pour work,” he said.
He stressed the importance of loyalty to family and country. “The only thing of endurance you leave on earth is children,” he said. “Pass on an unblemished name to the children
“Never tire of good works,” he said, “but take the time to smell the flowers. Take the time to reflect upon and enjoy this wonderful world ”
SWT education professor Barbara A. Hatcher delivered the keynote address at the Graduate School commencement. She stressed the Importance of “living with abandon.”
The five secrets to living with abandon, she said, are self-respect, building into the lives of others, turning disappointments into strengths, enjoying life’s processes as well as life’s rewards and “giving yourself to something bigger than you are ’ ’
