ZIZ News — The Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College hosted its commencement ceremony on Saturday which saw 233 students graduating from the institution.
The ceremony was held under the theme, “Celebrating 25 Years of Excellence.”
President of the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College, Dr Kelvin Daly told the graduates to not just be what they want to be in their future endeavors, but to be the best they can be.
He said “to be the best that you can be means that you have a comparative advantage of some sort, an edge over those engaged in the same activity, at the same time, in a particular space and time. Find your “ha” moment and go for it.”
Words of advice also came from the chairperson of the CFBC Board of Governors, Dr Eustace Esdaille who urged them to not be afraid of failure.
“You can learn as much from your failures as from your successes,” he said. “And so I want you to continue along the path, as I speak on behalf of the board, we expect you to do that; we expect you to make us all as a community proud.”
Minister of Education, Hon Nigel Carty told the graduates that they are now equipped with the tools to tackle life’s challenges.
“That you have completed your course of study at the CFBC is an achievement born of hard work, vision and perseverance,” he said. “May it open many doors, leading you to a meaningful and rewarding future. The challenges that the world presents to you are great, but guess what, so are you.”
Tamara Morton of the Division of Teacher Education delivered the Valedictorian speech.
The ceremony was held at the St Georges Anglican Church.
