Congratulations to our Engineering & Technology graduates!

Trace Hill, student respondentThe class of 2015-16 is off to a great start. Trace Hill, a computer engineering graduate from Roscommon, Mich. was selected to be this year's student respondent at commencement.

According to the LSSU news release, LSSU Vice President for Enrollment Services and Student Affairs Matt Jurvelin introduced student respondent Trace Hill as a student who is “not just strong academically, but involved outside of the classroom and is a wonderful individual who is rocketing to his future at a new job that he starts at Boeing this summer.”

Hill will be moving to Huntsville, Alabama, in June to work as a software engineer at the Boeing division where he was an intern last year. He will be working in a department contracted by NASA for the development of a rocket called Space Launch System while pursuing a master’s degree in physics.

Hill urged his fellow graduates to think of their diplomas “as more than a symbol of knowledge acquired…See your diploma as a piece of evidence that shows you had the dedication, the passion, and the discipline to devote yourself to a long-term goal and to see it to the very end, regardless of the challenges you faced along the way.

“Each of us faced some challenges…It was during those times when we were convinced we would never pass that course, never finish that paper, never graduate from college, that we learned just how strong and how capable we really are.”

He noted that while working as a tutor on campus that it was not a lack of passion, ambition, or perseverance that kept some students from doing better, but a lack of confidence in themselves.

“With confidence, you can succeed no matter how lofty the goal,” he said. “With passion, ambition, determination, and just a little bit of confidence in yourself, you can do whatever you set your mind to.”
