Grads Turn Tassels
Georgia State University head football coach, Bill Curry, urged more than 2,500 Georgia State graduates Monday night to set goals and follow their dreams.
Curry, who spoke at commencement the eve of his 46th wedding anniversary, praised his wife Carolyn, a two time Georgia State graduate for her persistence and "love of learning." Telling tales from his pro-football career, Curry, author of the popular book, "The Ten Men You Meet in the Huddle," told graduates to follow their inner voices and be change-makers in society.
The university conferred degrees to 2,526 undergraduate and graduate degrees and 133 doctoral degrees. Those figures include both summer graduates and fall degree candidates.
