Diggin’ to the future

As my graduation from Grambling State University comes to an end, I wanted to write this letter to express my appreciation and gratitude to everyone who was involved in my journey.

  First, I would like to thank my fellow peers at Grambling State University from 2008 till now. You all have played a prominent roll in my experiences here at Grambling

To my fellow classmates, we have all experienced the same great teachers; we leaned on each other to make it through our classes. The times I spent in and out of the classroom are all apart of the big picture, and I cherish all of these moments.

  To the clubs and organizations that I was involved in during my tenure here at GSU, I would like to thank you. 

To Santoria Black in the Grambling Sports Radio Network; thank you for taking me in as a freshman, and giving experience that will help me in my future endeavors in mass communication. To the Student Government Association, in my junior year this organization taught me the true level of professionalism.

  To all of my professors, thank you for giving me the opportunity to receive the education of a lifetime. Without your hard work and dedication I wouldn’t be where I am at today.

Last but certainly not least, to my brothers and sweethearts of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Incorporated. Where would I be without you? You gentlemen and ladies are family outside of home. 

To the past, present and future brothers that I’ve connected with throughout years as an undergraduate brother I love you for being there for me and teaching me real brotherhood.

  As I close this chapter of my life and move into the next big adventure, I know the education and experiences I have received will continue to support me on my upcoming journey.

I hope this letter of appreciation and farewell not only touches each of you with sincerity, but also a level of inspiration. Because in the end we each must truly be the change we wish to see in the world. Thank you and God bless!
