Ohio Today recognizes 10 graduates to watch
This is the time of the year to celebrate a promise fulfilled -- Commencement.
In marking the significance of this occasion, most often a prominent and accomplished professional is sought to address the graduating class of emerging scholars. The speaker is asked to deliver a message that conveys just the right amount of wisdom and grace to match the fullness of the moment.
Where does one turn for worthy inspiration to achieve such a task?
We found a rich assortment of dreamers and heroes, philosophers and poets, and sage scholars among Ohio University's soon-to-be graduates. Each one you'll meet -- like the 4,000 others they join -- is brimming with potential, poised for greatness.
Keep your eye on them. We think someday soon others will be seeking their wisdom and grace, too.
