Advice to the Class of 2018
Never say no to an opportunity. My post-Big Red life began with joining the U.S. Marine Corps and venturing out into the world. At each chapter of my life, an opportunity presented itself. A life spent working in communications, broadcasting and now Technology. Each intersection presenting new challenges which resulted into opportunities. Never limit yourself, if you don’t know… learn! If you have never done…. Try! Find that which you are truly happy in and the rest will fall into place. Don’t settle!!!
