Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr and University System of Georgia Board of Regents member Erin Hames were the commencement speakers. Separate commissioning ceremonies were held Dec. 14 for 26 members of the Corps of Cadets entering the armed forces as second lieutenants.

Carr encouraged graduates “to decide what success will mean to you.”

“I hope you love whatever it is you choose to do as much as I do, and I hope that every day you are excited to get out of bed, to get going, to tackle the day, and yes, to serve others,” Carr said. “Be passionate. I hope you give it your all. I hope you give of yourself because that’s the best way to find success.”

Hames asked graduates to remember what matters most.

“Make commitments and stick with them. Live with conviction and purpose,” Hames said. “Pursue those things that are good, true and beautiful. Work hard. Love well. Serve others.”
