  • Georgia Tech 2017 Spring Commencement - Afternoon Bachelor's Ceremony Spring 2017


(stately music) - [Announcer] Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome your spring 2017 Georgia Tech graduates. (audience applauds and cheers) ("Pomp and Circumstance") (heartfelt music) ("Pachelbel's Canon") ("Pomp and Circumstance") (stirring music) (elegant music) ("Pomp and Circumstance") (uplifting music) ("Pomp and Circumstance") (heartfelt music) ("Pachelbel's Canon") ("Pomp and Circumstance") (stirring music) Students, please rise for the faculty processional. (elegant music) (stately music) - Good afternoon and welcome. Would the audience please rise and remain standing for the posting of the colors and the singing of the national anthem, which will be sung by members of Sympathetic Vibrations. ♫ O say can you see ♫ By the dawn's early light ♫ What so proudly we hailed ♫ At the twilight's last gleaming ♫ Whose broad stripes and bright stars ♫ Through the perilous fight ♫ O'er the ramparts we watched ♫ Were so gallantly streaming ♫ And the rocket's red glare ♫ The bombs bursting in air ♫ Gave proof through the night ♫ That our flag was still there ♫ O say does that star-spangled ♫ Banner yet wave ♫ O'er the land of the free ♫ And the home ♫ Of the brave (audience applauds) - Please be seated. Well, good afternoon. In addition to the students that have been preparing for military service, I'd like for us to take a moment to recognize all of the veterans and active service members that are here with us today. If you have served or are currently serving in any branch of the US military, would you please rise and let us recognize you? (audience applauds and cheers) Thank you for your service. At this point, I'm very pleased to introduce Mr. Sahas Singh, a candidate for the bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering, who will give the reflection. (audience cheers and applauds) - Hello graduates and a warm welcome to all of your friends and family here this afternoon. I came to Georgia Tech as an international student from Dubai and to answer a somewhat disturbingly frequently asked question, no, I did not grow up riding a camel to school. (audience laughs) You may have also noticed that I wear a turban. It's had its benefits. For example, I never in my life had to worry about a bad hair day. (audience laughs) So when I moved to Atlanta to start my freshman year at Georgia Tech, I was naturally looking forward to being a poster boy for campus diversity. Little did I realize that diversity didn't have much to do with the way I looked nor the accent with which I spoke. Through the lens of today's socially charged times, I see in front of me the future leaders of government, industry, and philanthropy. Many of you have spent your undergraduate years readying yourselves to face the fantastically intricate technological, socioeconomic, and political hurdles that challenge modern society. Many others, of course, have spent it in front of a laptop playing World of Warcraft. (audience laughs) Nonetheless, the wonderfully diverse nature of our student body makes it incredibly hard to sum up the typical. We are scholars, athletes, innovators, founders of startups, proponents of social justice, effectors of political change, and myself, well, I don't mean to brag, but I did manage to wake up for a highly commendable 33.2% of all 8:00 a.m. heat transfer classes last semester. (audience laughs and applauds) We each shine in our own individual way. But the fact about diversity is that we often don't fully appreciate its value until a common thread strings us together. Take a walk around campus and the country melodies of Zac Brown Band mingle with the thumping tunes of Latin reggaeton, the vibrant jingles of Bollywood, the eclectic sounds of K-pop, and of course, how could I forget, the city of Atlanta's very own signature brand of hip-hop. Genres of music that are in all sorts of contradictions with one another. Remarkably, despite all that separates us, we never fail to come together as one at 3:00 a.m. on a Saturday night at Waffle House. Hash browns, yes sir, I'll take those tripled, smothered, covered, and peppered. (audience cheers and applauds) Indeed, our undisputed love for Waffle House speaks to the precious bond that we share, one which transcends the barriers of race, religion, gender, and sexual orientation. Today, as we disperse across the globe to chase our greatest ambitions and wildest dreams, rest assured the strength of our diversity will become our greatest asset. We will continue not only to stand but to leap off the shoulders of the Yellow Jackets who stood before us. Why, you ask? Well, to quote Dean Gary May for one final time, "This is what we do." Thank you and congratulations graduates! (audience cheers and applauds) - Congratulations. Thank you Sahas and good luck. Just a couple of quick notes. Sahas had not told his parents he was gonna do that, so they're probably a little surprised but congratulations. (audience laughs) And Sahas probably doesn't know that the president of Waffle House is in the audience because his daughter's graduating this afternoon. (audience laughs and applauds) Graduates, members of the faculty and staff, distinguished guests, families, and friends, it's my great pleasure to welcome you to the 253rd commencement exercises at the Georgia Institute of Technology. (audience applauds) This weekend's commencement exercises recognize our spring graduates. Today, we celebrate almost 2,200 undergraduate degree recipients and that's in addition to the nearly 1,300 graduate degrees we awarded last night. As is the case for our institute, success in life is seldom a one person effort. As we celebrate the successful conclusion of one chapter of your lifelong education, it's important to acknowledge that you had not done it alone. With us today are families, friends, and colleagues whose love and support have helped make this day possible. For some of those that are here with us today, this is not your first Georgia Tech commencement ceremony. If you're the parent of one or more proud Georgia Tech graduates through the years or if you're a Georgia Tech alumnus, please stand, wave, and be recognized. (audience applauds) Also included among our graduates today is the great-great-great-granddaughter of Georgia Tech's second president, Lyman Hall. Katherine Ryan represents the fourth generation in her family line to graduate from Georgia Tech. (audience applauds and cheers) In addition, with us this afternoon are members of the faculty who have guided and mentored these students, sharing with them their time, their wisdom, their expertise in order that each and every one of them could reach their fullest potential. Would the members of the faculty please stand and be recognized? (audience applauds) To the audience, while I could probably stand here and try to tell you how much our graduates appreciate you being here, I think they can say it better themselves. - Thank you mom and dad for always believing in me and trusting in me. Thank you Harry for always being that trusted advisor and pushing me the best I can be. Shout-out to Laura doing big things in USC. I love and appreciate you guys, we made it. - Thank you mom and dad for always being there for me. It's been a wild ride but we did it! - I just want to thank my mom and dad for helping me to get this far and installing faith and perseverance in me to become a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of a businesswoman. - Hi mom, dad, and Judy. Thank you so much for supporting me and guiding me throughout my life and through college. I can't wait to see where everything takes me next. Go Jackets and thank you so much again. - We got out. Go Jackets! - Man, graduation really sneaks up on you, huh? (shouts) - A giant congratulations to the Class of 2017. - Thanks mom and dad. - Go Jackets! (cheers) - I can't believe we're finally alumni. I want to thank my mom, dad, Nathan, Becca, mamaw, granddad, and Jeffrey for all of your love and support. Shout-out to my SEP ladies and go Jackets! (audience applauds) - At this time, I'd like to introduce several members of the stage party and I'll ask that you hold their applause as they stand when I call their name. Dr. Colin Potts, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education. (audience applauds) Dr. Archie Ervin, Vice President for Institute Diversity. Mr. Barrett Carson, Vice President for Development. Mr. Dene Sheheane, Vice President for Government and Community Relations. Mr. John Stein, Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students. Dr. Paul Kohn, Vice Provost for Enrollment Services. Ms. Patricia Kenly, Librarian from the Libraries. Dr. Roberta Berry, Director of the Georgia Tech Honors Program. Dr. Michelle Tullier, representing the Center for Career Discovery and Development. Ms. Reta Pikowsky, Registrar. Dean Gary May, our mace-bearer. And Dr. Susan Cozzens, Vice Provost for Graduate Education and Faculty Development. Dr. Cozzens is celebrating her last commencement this afternoon here at Georgia Tech. We thank her for her 19 years of tireless service as she moves to retirement. Thank you for being here. (audience applauds) This is a momentous day for you as graduates and for your family and friends who are sharing the celebration of your accomplishments. You have worked very hard to earn your degree from one of the best institutions in the nation and in many fields, one of the best in the world. Georgia Tech are engaged in research in more than 100 countries. The Institute has global centers in China, Costa Rica, Panama, and Singapore. And for more than 25 years, Georgia Tech has had a campus in Lorraine, France. During that time, more than 5,800 students have spent a semester or more at Georgia Tech Lorraine. Georgia Tech students study or intern in 70 countries, and 54% of all of our graduates will have participated in some sort of meaningful undergraduate experience before they leave Georgia Tech. 1/4 of you have participated in co-op, and 67% have had some sort of an internship. And while it's not required, 44% have studied a foreign language though most popular of which was Mandarin Chinese. Based on our spring statistics, 90% of you have already been offered a job and 79% have accepted one. The median starting salary for Georgia Tech bachelor degree recipients is over $68,000 and of course much higher in some fields. (audience applauds) That's the parents clapping in case you're wondering. (audience laughs) When thinking about your accomplishments, I'm reminded that all of you were touched in one way or another by the investment of our alumni. Through scholarships, fellowships, faculty chairs, facilities, or other means, and for all of that, we're enormously grateful. At Georgia Tech, we pride ourselves on being trailblazers who drive real world change by embracing challenges, thinking critically, and developing innovative solutions to some of the world's most pressing problems. We continue towards working towards the goal of making a Georgia Tech education within the reach of every qualified Georgia resident regardless of family income. We're proud to say that among our graduates today are 22 G. Wayne Clough Georgia Tech Promise scholars. Because of the Tech Promise program, qualified Georgia residents with the greatest financial need are able to earn a Georgia Tech degree debt-free. Through their hard work and Georgia Tech's commitment, not only will their lives be changed but the lives of their families for generations to come. Your Georgia Tech education is designed to prepare you to work collectively to identify challenges, create solutions, and to be leaders in business, industry, government, and the communities in which you will live, work, and play. Georgia Tech is in the business of creating the next, the next idea, the next technology, the next innovators and the next entrepreneurs. We're empowering you, the next generation of scientists, engineers, businessmen and women, architects, and leaders in so many other fields, engendering in each of you the passion and skills that you will need not only to live in the future but to design the future. You will be forever linked to this great institution, and we're looking for wonderful things from each and every one of you. (audience applauds) We're enormously fortunate this afternoon to have as our commencement speaker, Daniel Webster. He's a Georgia Tech alumnus who represents Florida's 11th district in the United States Congress. A family man and small business owner, he has served Central Florida's citizens for more than three decades of public life, winning his first election to the Florida House of Representatives at age 30. In 1996, he rose to become Speaker of the Florida House, the first Republican to hold that position in 122 years. He won election twice to the Florida Senate, first in 1998 and again in 2002. As the Senate majority leader, he worked to pass sweeping reforms that changed the way the legislature did business. From 2010 to 2016, he has won election to the US Congress four times. An example of his staying power is that due to redistricting, he has run and won in three different districts during his time. With his engineering background, Representative Webster currently is a ranking member of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. In the 115th Congress, he was also named to the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology and the House Committee on Natural Resources. Congressman Webster was born in Charleston, West Virginia, but we're glad he made his way to South Georgia where he earned his degree in electrical engineering in 1971 here at Georgia Tech. He's married to Sandra Jordan of Orlando, and they have six children, David, Brent, Jordan, Elizabeth, John, and Victoria, and 14 grandchildren. Congressman Webster is active in his church, First Baptist Church of Central Florida. And although he's known for many things, Congressman Webster still holds his faith, his family, and his principles as his biggest asset. Please help me in welcoming Congressman Daniel Webster. (audience applauds) - Thank you Dr. Peterson. It's great to be here today and to you and the faculty and friends and special guests and others who are gathered here today, welcome. This is a big deal for me. It's a big day for you as graduates, but it's a big deal for me. I would count it as one of the best honors I've received since I've been elected many years ago. And I would like to tell you graduates, it's a big deal for you. This is not the easiest place to escape. (audience laughs) They've tried to downplay the fact that most of us say we got out. I don't think they want to say that anymore, but you know it's true. We got out. (audience laughs) So to you, congratulations, well done. Graduating from this institution is an awesome awesome achievement. The week I started classes, well, I think it's the week before I started classes when I came to Georgia Tech, we had a retreat, a freshman retreat. And during that retreat, we're in a big room and someone said, one of the speakers said, "Look to your right, look to your left, "look in front of you, look behind you. "Only one of you is gonna make it to graduation day." You know what? You're one of those ones. You made it to graduation day and so that we are so grateful. (audience applauds) You studied long, you've worked hard, you've learned much, and for that, we're here to honor you. Matter of fact, the only reason we're here today is to honor you. You are the only reason and you deserve it, so I would say enjoy this day because it's a great day, and it's one you'll look back on fondly having received a diploma from this fantastic institution. This ceremony is a, it's an end and a beginning. It's a graduation ceremony. That's an end. It's like a graduate is somebody who's completed a course of study. And today, that's today, the book closes, it's done, you're over, you're gonna get a diploma, you're finished. On the other hand, I was invited to be a commencement speaker. Commencing is beginning; it's a new start. So today as that book closes on this chapter of your life, another book opens and it's gonna be even wider than this one. And all the opportunities that are out there are just gonna be amazing when you start seeking them. And the end produces a diploma which signifies the completion of the necessary courses and studies for the particular discipline you were engaged in. That's done. But you know it doesn't seem long ago that I was graduating from Georgia Tech. It was before you were born. (audience laughs) I received a degree in electrical engineering and my mom gave me a graduation card. Maybe your parents are gonna give you a graduation card. Maybe there'll be some money in it. A little bit of money was in mine. But on the outside it said, four years ago, I couldn't even spell inkineer. (audience laughs) And I opened it up, on the inside it said, now I are one. (audience laughs) So now you are one, a graduate, and congratulations for that. The diploma you receive is more than just a piece of paper with some words on it and some signatures, way more than that. First of all, it's a picture of the time and energy and effort that you and others who supported you put in to this four or maybe five year or maybe longer trek to graduation day, and it makes this special occasion possible. But second of all, this is not just any diploma. This is Georgia Tech. It's different, and so President Peterson and the leadership here and the faculty, not only had they maintained our rich history and a lot of traditions, the Whistle, the Wreck, the fight, George P. Burdell. All of those things have been maintained. Yet they have taken this Georgia Tech and grown it, grown it in stature among not only our country, all over our country but also globally. And they have turned this into an institution that has a fantastic reputation all over the world. Just last week, the annual Capstone Design Expo was held right here in this pavilion. And Capstone, it is a picture of a showcase, a showcase where Georgia Tech graduates can show their stuff before they ever graduate. Any of y'all participate in that? Anybody? A few, yeah, okay, you did. That's great. And there were 242 teams competing, the most in Georgia Tech history. And it's pretty awesome. Matter of fact, it's the biggest one in the country. More than 1,200 graduating seniors from 11 different schools, three different colleges within Georgia Tech competed and participated. And there are designs for everything from drones to, there was something else, underwater robots, and a lot of things in between. The winning team, Pump It Up, Kracken, a water sampling system that will be deployed under the Arctic ice, which is a pretty awesome thing. But you know what? Even before this day of graduation, the stories are beginning to mount about the graduates who are in this particular class, and they're being told. I read a couple of them and I wanted to highlight them. Molly Ricks, talked to her before this started. There she is right over here, and she is an international affairs major. Molly was a InVenture Prize finalist as a freshman. Her product helped new users learn to play the guitar. But Molly is one of 11 children. I think she's the fifth, fifth-born. And so the first five have been to Georgia Tech, and she told me there was more to come. And her dad also is an alumnus. Marcy Williams, didn't get to meet her, but I know she's here somewhere. And she's a business major, a mother of three who came back to school with her daughter, and she's graduating today. Balancing athletics and academics at Georgia Tech is not easy. This year, both the men's and women's teams made it to the finals in the NIT basketball tournament. It's awesome, way to go. (audience cheers and applauds) I watched all the games, and they played excellent. Quinton Stephens, so I met beforehand. He's a business major. Quinton, where are you? (audience cheers and applauds) There you are, You could have stayed sitting down. We could have still seen you, I think. (audience laughs) But he was on the men's basketball team, star athlete there. Katrina Vuckovic, she also was on the women's team. And I don't know where she is. There she is right here, awesome. (audience cheers and applauds) Both are gonna walk across the stage today. Ana Gomez del Campo is part of a team that invented Wobble an automated balance test to assess athletes following concussions. The device will help keep athletes safe and reduce the risk of permanent damage. Ana is a biomedical engineer, engineering major. There are more stories but the point is this. Everyone of you are graduating from a and are part of a group graduating from an awesome institution. And so you're gonna get a diploma, and I would tell you display that diploma proudly. Because you're a group, a select group, an important group not only for your community, not only for this area if you stay in it, but also for our country. We need your brilliance. We need your diligence. We need your entrepreneurship. And I know the graduates of this institution are gonna be able to produce. And maybe we even need your interest in politics. Now I will advise you, when I graduated from Georgia Tech, I can remember one thing. Every single engineering class I had, we had quizzes and tests and exams. And in each one of those, each individual problem had one answer. Then I got into politics, and nobody even wanted to be confused with the facts or the answers, say there are no answers, no or right answers. It's a wild thing. So I just warn you, if you do, just know it's not gonna be like engineering. So knowledge, grades, credits, diplomas, those are all excellent things. They're foundational for your success. But I'd like to share with you three principles, leave with you these principles that I hope would aid you in being successful. The first is learn the value of time. Every one of us had the same amount of time, every one of us. And 24 hours each day, treasure every hour. Think about it. Gold, gold is measured in 24 units, 24 karats being the the finest gold, the most expensive gold. Time is the same way. It is very very valuable. And I would tell you don't waste any of it. One time, I had to stay in a, especially when I was in the state legislature, hotels all the time. And so I was in a hotel room and Georgia Tech was playing a game and it started at nine o'clock. This is many years ago. Mark Price was on that team and John Salley, some others who have become, I'm sure they're highlighted in all kinds of places in this building. But in that game, they played till the regulation and then there were three overtimes after that. I saw two of those three overtimes and then I went to sleep. And I woke up and there was fuzz on the screen and I missed the last one, it was late. And I got up late the next day. I didn't get to prepare for the day. And I just thought, even though it was Georgia Tech, I just thought, you know what? I'm just not gonna turn on a TV ever again in a motel room by myself. I just thought, I'm not gonna do that. Nothing wrong with it. Certainly nothing wrong with watching Georgia Tech. It is kind of bad that they lost but nothing wrong with that. It's just the fact I wanted to take my time and spend it the best way I could. And so every day I wake up and I tell myself, today, like I did this morning, today is May the 6th 2017. I'll never get another opportunity to live this day again. It's gonna be gone. So I'm gonna live it with the best purpose I could possibly conceive. Secondly I tell you, learn the value of reading. Yeah, the books are closed and you're over. Now you're gonna go out and do things. Yes, that's true. But growing up, matter of fact, I loved doing. I hated, despised reading. I didn't like it, but you know what? I taught myself to like it. I still don't like it as much as I like other things, but I do like it and I do read, and I would commend that to you. I forced myself to read initially and now I read; I like it. I read through the Bible every year. Pick what you will, read what you will, but do it. That's the key, read. And then lastly, learn the value of listening. You know what the most prized possession of a member of Congress or a legislature or a governor or others. You know what they love? They love these, microphones. You know why? They like to talk. They just talk. I mean, you can look at an empty chamber, the House of Representatives chamber on C-SPAN. If you do, you're pretty bored, but if you watched it, you would notice there's nobody in the room. And you know what? We're still talking. But I would tell you learn the value of listening. I mean, most people because of a physician or a title or something else want to be heard. So they're the governor or a legislator or a commissioner or a congressman or president or whatever. They want to be heard, why? Because they have a position, and they think they should be heard. I would give you maybe a little alternative to that. Earn the right to be heard by listening. The people you listen to are the key to your success in the future. So I would ask you please learn the value of listening. So those things right there, learn the value of rising early and time and how important that is. Learn the value of reading, and then learn the value of listening. Those three things I would commend unto you. And I would tell you again, may you find true success. I know each of you are very excited about the end and have full anticipation about what lies ahead of you. I wish you the best. Congratulations again; may God bless you, and God bless the United States. Go Jackets! (audience applauds) - Got a gift for you. - Oh yes. Thank you so much. - Thank you Congressman for your kind words, and thank you for representing us in the United States Congress. (audience applauds) So now we've come to the time that you've all been waiting for, the conferring of your degrees. (audience cheers and applauds) The moment of walking across the stage represents a culmination of much work and achievement for each of our graduates. I would ask that after you receive your diploma, you return to your seat and show your fellow students the same respect that they have given you as you cross the stage. At this point, I'm pleased to welcome Dr. Rafael Bras, Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, who will now introduce the academic deans by college and then present the candidates for the bachelor's degree, Dr. Bras. - Good afternoon. - [Audience] Good afternoon! - Are we happy? - [Audience] Yeah! - You look good out there. Associate Dean John Tone will present the undergraduate candidates for the degrees in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts. - Candidates for the bachelor of science degree in the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, please rise and remain standing.

(audience cheers and applauds) - Will the graduates please rise? (audience cheers and applauds) Upon the recommendation of the faculty of the Georgia Institute of Technology and by authority of the Board of Regents of the university system of Georgia, I confer upon each of you the bachelor's degree with all the rights, privileges, and responsibilities hereunto appertaining, congratulations. (audience cheers and applauds) Graduates, to symbolize your achievement, you may now move the tassel on your mortarboard from the right to the left, congratulations. (audience cheers and applauds) Go ahead and almost there. (audience laughs) At this time, I'd like to introduce Major John Meister, Army ROTC to recognize those graduates who are commissioned to serve in the US armed forces. (audience applauds) - Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon. Today, I have the privilege of honoring a special group of students in the graduating class of 2017. Will the graduates of the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine Corps ROTC programs please stand and be recognized? (audience cheers and applauds) Mr. President, in addition to their academic degrees, these students have completed a rigorous program focusing on physical conditioning, academics, and leadership to become commissioned officers in the United States armed forces. For their outstanding accomplishments and patriotism, please show your appreciation and congratulate these graduates, thank you. (audience applauds) - Thank you Major and thank you for your service. You know, Georgia Tech alumni are an extraordinary group of high achievers. To welcome the members of this graduating class into the fellowship of Tech, I'm pleased to introduce Ms. Andrea Laliberte, classes of 1982 and 1984 and Chair of the Georgia Tech Alumni Association. (audience applauds) - Thank you. It is my honor to congratulate you on receiving your degree and to welcome you to the Georgia Tech Alumni Association. (audience members cheer) Okay, whoo! The mission of the alumni association is simple, to keep you connected with each other, with new students, and with the Institute, and to advance the Institute through Roll Call, our annual fund. I stand before you today wearing the same gown that I wore when I graduated 35 years ago. (audience members applauds) Yeah, who knew I would have an opportunity to do so? Well, I guess it was my mother because she kept it hanging in the closet for 25 years before sending it to me. While I could have chosen to wear nicer and newer regalia, this gown reminds me of the education I received and the pride I take in being a Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket. (audience members cheer) Okay, when I think back to my graduation day, it was hot and my family had traveled from Massachusetts to celebrate with me. (audience member cheers) All right, Massachusetts! After that day, my focus quickly changed from studying and going to class to career and living my life. I was in Atlanta for a few years after college, so I went to some football games. And I had contributed to Roll Call on a fairly consistent basis, but I didn't do much else Tech-related. However, my Georgia Tech degrees and education opened many doors for me in the years that followed and well-prepared me for success. My first job after earning my master's degree was with a small 50 person consulting firm. For much of the time, I was the only woman consultant. My Georgia Tech degrees gave me credibility with the other consultants and with our clients. It also helped that all of the co-founders had connections with Georgia Tech. From there, I went to work in the fashion retail industry. I was one of the few engineers at the company. Once again, my industrial engineering degrees from the number one school in the country gave me credibility. So thank you Georgia Tech. It wasn't until my 25th reunion neared that I reconnected with Tech and its vast alumni network. I had achieved a level of career success I never imagined, and I knew my Georgia Tech education had helped me greatly. So it was time for me to recognize this through my giving to Tech. Since then, I have become an active participant in Alumni Association programs. I've served on advisory boards, and I've even come back to campus as a professor of the practice. What stands out for me are all of the amazing alumni, faculty, staff, and students I have met. Everyone is passionate and cares about Georgia Tech, its students, and its alumni. There truly is a Georgia Tech family. And like any family, you can decide how involved you want to be. My regret is I did not reconnect sooner. How many of you were members of SAA? Yeah, let's hear SAA! All right, that's great. So you know what it means to be connected with alumni. So stay connected with the alumni association. Become a mentor. Go to a local network event. Update your profile. If you are not a member, connect with us. There's alumni network of over a 150,000 people waiting to welcome you to the family. So one way you can stay connected as alumni is to participate in Roll Call. You know, I know it can be difficult just to give financially at the start of your career. So for your first year, your alumni association has made a $25 donation in each of your names. Consider this the start of your giving habit to Georgia Tech. So yeah! (claps) (audience applauds) Do the calculations, 3,500 graduates. It's important. We want to stay connected with you. I have one piece of advice to give. Being an engineer, I love equations. So let me share with you my equation for success. For me, there are three key components to maximize success, ability, opportunity, and desire or passion. Since you are graduating from Georgia Tech, you certainly have ability and you know how to learn for the future. Companies want to hire Georgia Tech graduates, so there is and will be opportunity. You can have ability and be given an opportunity, but if you don't have the desire to do the job, you will not be as successful as you could be. Find and follow your passion. It may take time, so be patient. Combined, these three components will maximize your success. You are now a member of the Georgia Tech alumni network, and your achievements now and in the future will help this institution secure bright and diverse students, faculty, and global recognition as one of the best universities to attend. Be proud that you are part of this legacy. I know I am. So once again, congratulations to this year's graduating class. Welcome to the alumni family and go Jackets, thank you. (audience applauds) - Thank you Andrea. You know, every graduating class from Georgia Tech is special, but this morning's reflection speaker helped me understand how special this class is. You've seen many things while you were here. At your freshman convocation, you were told that you can do that. (audience laughs and cheers) Close to your freshman convocation, (laughs) you saw a miracle on North Avenue. (audience cheers) One of your classmates kicked a 53 yard field goal in Athens. (audience cheers) The men's and women's basketball team both went to the NIT finals this year. (audience cheers) Your colleagues discovered water on Mars. (audience cheers) And you welcomed the Einstein statue. (audience cheers) And the morning after some of your colleagues participated in the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory experiment that verified Einstein's theory of relativity, you hung a sign on the statue that said I told you so. (audience laughs and cheers) But the thing that impresses me the most is the things that you'll see and do in your life and career, and I wish you all the very best. In closing, I want to express my appreciation to Karen Head for announcing the graduates' names. At this time, Sympathetic Vibrations will lead us in the alma mater followed immediately by the faculty recessional. The graduates and the audience are requested to remain standing as the platform party recesses. Then, I invite all of you to join in the singing of the nation's best known fight song, Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech. For our newest graduates from Georgia Tech, as you exit the McCamish Pavilion, you'll hear the Whistle blow in your honor. Thank you for being here this afternoon. Congratulations and godspeed. (audience cheers and applauds) - One, two, three. ♫ Oh, sons of Tech, arise, behold ♫ The Banner as it reigns supreme ♫ For from on high, the White and Gold ♫ Waves in its triumphant gleam ♫ The spirit of the cheering throngs ♫ Resounds with joy revealing ♫ A neighborhood in praise and song ♫ In memory of the days gone by ♫ Oh, Scion of the Southland ♫ In our hearts you shall forever fly (audience applauds and cheers) - [Woman] Congratulations on your graduation. (graceful music) ♫ I'm a ♫ Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech ♫ And a hell of an engineer (audience claps to the beat) ♫ A helluva, helluva, helluva, helluva, hell of an engineer ♫ Like all the jolly good fellows, I drink my whiskey clear ♫ I'm a Ramblin' Wreck from Georgia Tech ♫ And a hell of an engineer ♫ Oh, if I had a daughter, sir ♫ I'd dress her in White and Gold ♫ And put her on the campus to cheer the brave and bold ♫ But if I had a son, sir, I'll tell you what he'd do ♫ He would yell to hell with Georgia ♫ Like his daddy used to do ♫ Oh, I wish I had a barrel of rum and sugar 3,000 pounds ♫ A college bell to put it in ♫ And a clapper to stir it around ♫ I'd drink to all the good fellows ♫ Who come from far and near ♫ I'm a ramblin', gamblin', hell of an engineer, hey (audience cheers and applauds) ("Ramblin' Wreck of Georgia Tech")



John Strother Griffin was born in Fincastle, Virginia, on June 25, 1816, to John Caswell Griffin and Mary Talbot Hancock, both of Virginia. He had five siblings, George Hancock, William Preston, Julia Elizabeth, Caroline Margaret and Elizabeth Croghan.[1] An uncle was William Clark of the Lewis and Clark expedition, and a later brother-in-law was Confederate General Albert Sydney Johnston.[2]

His father dying when young John was seven and his mother when he was nine, Griffin was then brought up and given a "classical education" in Louisville, Kentucky, by a maternal uncle, George Hancock.[3][4]

He was married about 1856[3] to Louisa M.E. Hayes or Hays of Baltimore, who died in 1888,[5] ten years before Griffin's death on August 23, 1898. Griffin succumbed in his East Los Angeles home, 1109 Downey Ave., where he lived with his nephew and niece, Mr. and Mrs. Hancock M. Johnson, and their children. Funeral services were conducted in the home and at the gravesite in Evergreen Cemetery by J.P. Widney. Pallbearers were J.M. Griffith, Harris Newmark, S. Lazard, Reginaldo Del Valle, Major Ben Truman and James Craig. Besides the Johnsons, he was survived by two nieces, Mrs. George J. Denis and Mrs. William B. Pritchard.[3][4]


Griffin attended the University of Pennsylvania,[2] where he received a medical degree in 1837. At that time the university listed his "place of origin" as "Kentucky."[6]



In 1840, Griffin was appointed assistant surgeon in the Army and served under General William J. Worth in Florida and, with the rank of captain, on the Southwest frontier at Fort Gibson, Griffin came to California for the first time with General Kearney on the trek from New Mexico in 1846. He was stationed in San Diego and in Los Angeles in charge of the military hospitals, visited the California Gold Country during the 1849 Gold Rush and was stationed in Benicia until 1852. In that period he was given duty in an expedition against the Yuma Indians on the Colorado River. He was assigned to Washington, D.C., in 1853 and resigned from the service in 1854.[3][4][7]

The California Historical Society in 1944 published Griffin's diary relating his wartime experiences, under the title A Doctor Comes to California — The Diary of John S. Griffin, M.D., 1846–1847.[8][9]

Doctor Griffin's story concerns the hardships endured by General Kearney's small force as it crossed the unknown and trackless deserts, and it recounts what took place in the battles of San Pascual, San Gabriel, La Mesa and Los Angeles, and reveals his methods of treatment for wounds and diseases afflicting the soldiers in his charge. The narrative is most interesting.[8]



Before joining the Army, Griffin practiced for three years in Louisville, Kentucky, and returned to Los Angeles after he left the service.[3][4] In Griffin's obituary, the Los Angeles Times noted that:

Physicians were scarce in those days, and a man with a university education and seventeen years' experience as army surgeon and general pratictioner was instantly welcomed and called to minister to the ailments of all the best people around. Like a circuit rider he journeyed up and down Southern California to answer to the calls of American settlers and Spanish patrons.[3]

Griffin is said to have been the "second pioneer educated physician to arrive in Los Angeles," the first being Richard Den, who came in 1843.[4]

One of his staff was Bridget (Biddy) Mason, who worked for him as a midwife and nurse, becoming known for her herbal remedies. She earned $2.50 a day, considered a good wage for African-American women at that time. In 1856, Mason had been declared a person "free forever" in a successful suit she filed as a slave brought from slave-holding Texas into the free state of California in 1851. The judge rendering the decision was Benjamin Hayes, the brother of Griffin's wife.[10][11]

James King of William

Griffin was summoned all the way to San Francisco to advise doctors on the treatment of James King of William, the editor of the San Francisco Evening Bulletin, who had been shot at close range on May 14, 1856, by James P. Casey, whom King had identified in the newspaper as having had a criminal record in New York.[12]

Medical historian John Long Wilson wrote that King, who was active during the San Francisco Committee of Vigilance era:

dared to expose scoundrels in both public and private domains; and by relentlessly pursuing a campaign against them, he changed the course of history in the beleaguered city. It is of special interest to us that the violence erupting as a result of his biting editorials had extraordinary medical dimensions.[13]

Doctors who first treated King had inserted a sponge into the bullet wound to stanch the bleeding and were debating whether to remove it in order to fight a severe infection that had arisen. After examining King on May 18, Griffin advised against the removal, fearing hemorrhage from a severed subclavian artery. King died on May 20.[13] Casey was soon executed after a "trial" arranged by the Vigilance Committee.[14]

Wilson opined that:

Dr. Griffin's conspicuous army service in Southern California combined with his sterling personal qualities no doubt contributed to his rapid rise to leadership in civic and business affairs in Los Angeles, and to his acquisition of a large surgical practice within a few years. Although memorial statements about his career say that he sought new treatments and was not hesitant to discard old methods, we have no specifics as to the meaning of these generalities and we have no information about his experience with vascular surgery. In any case, we know that he sided with . . . [his] timid colleagues and advised against removing the sponge. Assuming that it was not already too late to make a difference, we must conclude that it was Griffin's opinion that sealed the fate of James King of William.[13]

Nevertheless, a coroner's jury returned a verdict of "no medical malpractice," stating that King would have died of the wound regardless of the sponge.[15]

Smallpox epidemic

In return for his work in stemming a smallpox epidemic, the city of Los Angeles awarded Griffin a plot of land on what was called the "Enchanted Hill" where Lincoln High School was later built (now 3501 North Broadway).[16]

Real estate and politics

Griffin was called "the father of East Los Angeles"[4] and was said to have created the first suburb of the city of Los Angeles in Lincoln Heights after he purchased 2,000 acres of ranch land for $1,000 and in 1870, with his nephew, Hancock Johnson, erected houses on the site. That land was a rancho called La Rosa de Castilla, on the east side of the Los Angeles River, taking in the deserted hills between Los Angeles and Pasadena — what is today the Eastside neighborhood of the city of Los Angeles.[citation needed] In late 1874 the two men offered an additional thirty-five acres, divided into 65x165-foot lots, for $150 each.[2][3] They planned the laying out of streets and gifted East Side Park (the present Lincoln Park) to the city of Los Angeles.[3]

Griffin undertook many business deals in early Los Angeles with landowner and politician Benjamin Davis Wilson, including railways, oil exploration, real estate, farming and ranching, and in 1863 they bought Rancho San Pascual — which encompassed today's towns of Pasadena, Altadena, South Pasadena, Alhambra, San Marino and San Gabriel — and diverted water from the Arroyo Seco to the dry mesa via an aqueduct called the "Wilson Ditch."

He was one of the incorporators of the Los Angeles City Water Company and the Farmers and Merchants Bank.[4]

Los Angeles historian H.D. Barrows wrote in 1898 that:

When this city and section were terrorized by an organized banditti which killed Sheriff James R. Barton and party in January, 1857, and the city was placed under quasi martial law, Dr. Griffin by general consent was placed at the head of the semi-military defensive organization of our citizens.[4]

A Democrat,[3] Griffin was a member of the Los Angeles Common Council from May 1858 to May 1859.[17]


Griffin Avenue in Montecito Heights and Lincoln Heights is named for him.[3][18][19]
