RENO, NV – Today, U.S. Senator Jacky Rosen (D-NV) delivered the winter commencement speech to the graduating class of 2019 at the University of Nevada Reno.
“As I look out at all of the graduates here today, it excites me to think about where you are heading next in your journey to discover your higher purpose, a higher purpose that you can chase after, one that you can aspire to. Some of you may decide to continue your education, some of you may work — here in Nevada, or somewhere else — although I hope it’s Nevada. Because having spent time here, you know just how wonderful our state is, and your contributions will keep lifting us higher,” said Senator Rosen. “In every field you enter, you will have opportunities to help others, sometimes in big ways, and sometimes in small ones. I want to make a request of the graduates here today. I ask all of you, and everyone in the audience here as well, to seize those opportunities. Never be afraid or apathetic to the idea of helping another person. You never know how your actions might touch the lives of others, even those you’ve never met. Congratulations, Class of 2019. I know you’ll continue to make Nevada proud.”
