twilight’s last gleaming whose bright stripes and bright stars through the
perilous fight or the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming and
the Rockets red glare the bombs bursting in air gave proof through
the night that our flag was still there oh say does that star-spangled banner
yet wave o’er the land of the free and the home of the brave Thank You you may be seated honored graduates this day has finally
arrived we have all gathered here your professors your counselors advisers
support staff your board of trustees your parents your spouse’s relatives and
friends all of us to celebrate you to acknowledge your achievements which will
be forever transcribed and denoted on the certificates and degrees that you
will take away with you this afternoon there have been many different paths
from which you came to Barstow Community College whether directly from high
school after a period away from school working different jobs at home caring
for children grandchildren or other family members here after a layoff from
work or retirement you have all come here from different trajectories without
doubt you’ve made big trade-offs in your lives to commit the time and energy
needed to get through the coursework the hours of studying researching at the
library paper writing tests taking all the things that have culminated in this
day which marks the successful completion of this journey it’s a day
for celebration and it’s a day to pause and thank all of the people that helped
get you here and then tomorrow you have the rest of your lives
staring you in the face you likely have people asking you what will you do next
will you transfer to a university what career will you pursue some of you may
have a quick indefinite answer you may already have it all mapped out
many of you may not have a clue for those of you whose next destination is
already marked on your map of life I’m happy for you but I need to tell you
that even you will inevitably face a time when life presents a detour you
never expected and you won’t be sure where you’re headed or if your
destination will be the one you wanted in the first place but that’s okay
that’s the nature of life I could spend the entire afternoon talking to you
about ways to approach this next phase in your life this new chapter new path
whatever metaphor you wish to use but let me set you at ease though because
I’m not I’m gonna cut to the chase and offer you a quick bit of advice that I
think that I hope will be useful to you when you leave tonight with your diploma
in hand I want you to somehow convert transmit what that piece of paper means
into a space somewhere inside of you as a reminder that you’re smart that you
are creative and curious that you are capable of overcoming obstacles that you
can achieve something that you may have thought unobtainable that you have the
perseverance to carry on no matter how hard the task tuck that knowledge about
yourself away like you’d put away a glorious and beautiful stone that you’ve
discovered and place it carefully in your pocket think of it as your
invention your reinvention stone think of it as your invent reinvention stone
sort of like Harry Potter’s resurrection stone store away that stone so that when
you face your new challenges challenges that you will undoubtedly conjure some
self-doubt perhaps a bit of fear you can take out your stone and be reminded of
the accomplishments we celebrate with you today
let it remind you of what you’re capable of so that you can push forward into the
unknown tomorrow’s of your life believe in
yourselves graduates look back to this day to the essence of this moment that
you tuck away as your reinvention stone and know that you carry with you what it
takes to ultimately succeed to contribute to make a difference in the
world I also advise you that why you have great reason to be proud of the
honor that is being bestowed upon you this afternoon don’t fall into the trap
that many graduates do which is to sometimes assume that with this paper
people out there in the world will automatically jump at the chance to hire
you in that career that you may have set your sights on I remember myself as a
newly painted newly minted PhD who was at the time working as a temp stuffing
envelopes for the Xerox Corporation I took the job because I needed to put a
roof over my head but after a few weeks and having spoked out the kind of higher
level work I thought I could do I shared my resume with the people inside the
company to see what the prospects were I remember the director of market research
looking up for my resume with the PhD in anthropology typed at the top he said
with me with to me with a smile but what can you do for me at that moment I
really hadn’t a clue how I could take my training as a cultural anthropologist
and tell him exactly what I could do that was useful for him that day
but over time I eventually did figure out how I could help him nowadays people
who did what I did call it organizational development consultation
but the learning for me would recognize that it is not what you know that
matters it is your willingness to find what good you can do in the world that
is all that matters so go into the world dear graduates live give love and laugh
we are all rooting for you and when you encounter the day when you find yourself
needing that reinvention stone I hope you will remember Barstow Community
College and courageously march on and now I would like to call to the
podium Dr. Morse Vice President of Academic Affairs to the stage to present
the class honors Dr. Morse thank you Dr. Bagg good afternoon

today I can’t hear you Alright, well I’m feeling good, happy, grateful, thankful, blessed, and most important
proud of every single one of us! and I can scream and say that WE HAVE MADE IT! Good job. Good afternoon President Bagg,
Board of Trustees, faculty and staff, family, friends, and relatives. My name is Fatima Abbas and today I’m honored to speak on behalf of the graduates of
class 2018 and I want to say Congratulations! Congratulations to you
and to your loved ones. We are gathered here today to celebrate
the hard work that we have done over these past years, with the help of
wonderful people that were part of our wonderful journey. Steve Jobs once said, “Don’t let the noise of others opinions drown out your inner voice and most
important had the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow know
what you truly want to become everything else is secondary.” Hopefully you got a chance to go over my bio and you got a little interested on
what I will be talking about today. Today I will be sharing my story with you, a
story that shaped my life and will shape the rest of it. I’ve graduated from high
school in Jordan in 2014 and I ended up with a good GPA that will allow me to
apply for a good major but unfortunately it wasn’t high enough to get me accepted
at Medical School. Which was what I was aiming for. This stressed me out I got into depression and I feel like nothing will
ever make me happy anymore. Application deadlines were approaching I selected a
major that I didn’t like and because I wasn’t interested I didn’t even finish
the paperwork. And guess what I missed the whole year crying in my room. After
that my life turned upside down. I has no control over what was going on around me. and all I did was just following my family’s decisions. and what they saw good
for me at that time is to move to the United States and to finish my education
over there and Here I am a bar spec Community College first-year tough
enough to make me decide on going back sure enough I was a teenager that just
got out of her little bogs and had to face the real word that she wasn’t ready
for two years past I’ve only learned a lot and became better and making
decisions and planning for a good future what I’m trying to tell you is that it
takes you time to know what you really want to do in your life but it takes you
courage to actually start doing it unfortunately back in 2014 I didn’t have
that courage to make my own decisions but today I can tell you that I’m strong
enough to be the leader of my own life and that’s what I want you to get out of
my story today I want you to become the leader of your own life make your own
decisions don’t let anyone else decide for you if you’re having troubles give
yourself some time experience new things you’ll get there and no matter how many
struggles you faced with that graduation day in front of you and believe me these
struggles will even make you work harder as international students I felt very
welcomed at Barstow Community College I’ve made a lot of good friends that I
can consider family I’ve worked with amazing people and I’ve received the
help of a wonderful faculty and staff at the end of my speech I want to thank my
uncle for giving me the opportunity to be here with all of you today
for showing me love and support throughout my whole life if you would
please give him a big round of applause thank you and I want to say everyone
else that showed me a love and support throughout these three past years that
I’ve spent here at the United States thank you so much once again
congratulations graduates go forth and conquer the world thank you so much
thank you from the bottom of my heart I love you all and I wish you the best in
life and hamdullah I’m so happy today thank you and now it is my distinct honor to
welcome and introduce to you our commencement speaker Dr. Kindred Murrillo

2018 Barstow College commencement ceremony I was in this gym 30 years ago

walking down that aisle today I got tears in my eyes because I was stupid I
didn’t attend my graduation you’re here all of you are here you’re ahead of me
by just being here and celebrating your achievement so give yourselves a big
hand graduates Barstow Community College is the place
where I learned that I could realize what my parents taught me I still have a
98 year old father that lives in this community I’m here every five weeks
visiting you this is still home my parents taught me the world should be a
better place because you are in it five children they never let us forget that
and three of us went to this college but I want to learn a little bit about you
before I share my story so graduates how many of you have been at this college
for two years stand up I want you to stand up stand up scooting for you it’s
really good for you okay okay you can sit down
all right now how many of you’ve been here for three years okay okay now you can sit down you know this
is good for you right standing up all right how about more four years or more
stand up okay I have you all beat I was here ten
years yeah that’s a long time so congratulations because you know what
I saw a whole bunch of you that are getting in and out of this College in
two years but I also want to say to you that have taken more than three or four
years you have perseverance you have tenacity or you have life challenges
that keep you from being able to go to school full-time right and because
you’re still in school I congratulate you I was one of you how many of you the first to go to
school in your family go to college stand up first in your family all right families you’re great you are
into this so today I honor you and your accomplishment you achieved this you
achieve this because I can tell you’ve got a lot of support out here right you
achieved this because you’ve got great faculty and a staff and administration
and board that care about your education I went here I was a student I know how
dedicated the people at this College are until recently I never told my story I didn’t want to say I graduated from a
community college it was not the highlight of my resume I remember when I
went to talk to the principal at my children’s school
Cameron school anybody go to Cameron school I got it okay I went there
Skyline North Barstow high and he told me well nobody will care where you got
your two-year degree well I’m here to tell you I’m proud of having a degree
from Barstow Community College some of the things that I learned that still are
in me today that are part of who I am came from the faculty at this college
they were people who sat down and said to me you can do something with your
life you can do this when I was a graduated from Barstow adult evening
school I was pregnant with my second child not a place you want to be in your life
so what I would tell you is when I came to Barstow College I felt like a failure
because my parents kept telling me you’re gonna go to the University you’re
gonna be this you can do this and I felt like a failure I didn’t think I could do
it one night after a math class if I came every night four nights a week to
classes I mean just kept going when I could Barstow College Sam professor
pulled me samso chess pulled me aside anybody
remember Sam professor so just I should be respectful I was his student and he’s
told me he asked me what I wanted to do with my life
he could tell I was wandering around aimlessly not knowing what the heck I
was doing and you know what he convinced me that I was a smart young woman that I
could raise two children that I could work and I could succeed I would not be
standing in front of you today if it was not for this College I can’t say that
any more emphatically and mean it because never miss underestimate the
value of this education it will get you what you want to go Wow am i passionate
or what sorry I am passionate I am passionate about community colleges
I am compact I am passionate about students because I came to Barstow
Community College I almost started crying walking down
that aisle and I’m still on the verge of tears to be here to be honored to be
your speaker I have dedicated my life to students and community colleges and for
me this is coming home I want you to know that this is full circle for me
it’s coming home to the place that enabled me to be a college president a
president that fights for equity that fights for equality who fights for every
student that walks through the doors of a community college life is messy just
know that because when it gets messy it’s okay it really is okay I shoveled
coal anybody remember the old power plant out east of Barstow who water
coal gas anybody there was a coal plant out there I shoveled coal in it to
support two kids life was not easy tenacity resilience will get you there
you can do this you keep moving through I lost a fourteen-year-old daughter in a
car accident just north of this town I didn’t think I could get past that piece
and I’m standing here in front of you today with a doctorate I can’t believe
that I could do that it’s borne of being tenacious resilient
I can see some of you nodding your head you know what I mean you’ve struggled
you’ve gone through battles you’ve done everything you can to stay in college so
congratulations on that because you know what it doesn’t matter what happens to
you all you have to do is when you fall down when somebody pushes you down you
stand up right and you participate so my last parting words for you be kind be
civil and have a strong backbone nothing wrong with a strong backbone but be kind
and civil with that backbone stand up for others we live in a world of
inequality and poverty and that should not exist in the United States of
America stand up for that you made it this far
now take what you have learned and change what you don’t like in the world
there is plenty to fix and we need everyone standing up for our communities
for those kids for your kids for our future our nation and our planet have
gratitude for your life for those who support you and thank you
please give appreciation to your families and the people that are the
faculty and staff here at this College please give them a hand and have hope
hope will get you through it got me through those nights I didn’t think I
could make it hope Oprah Winfrey tells us we should declare war on cynicism I
loved it when I heard her say that it’s time that we don’t get disillusioned and
we do not give up Thank You Barstow Community College Thank You faculty
