Dr. Rick Rigsby
I want to honor the graduates because it takes tremendous perseverance. It takes relentless focus, determination and dedication to receive a degree in the way in which you received it. I want to give you a little bit of advice: Your goal now is to make an impact.
Dr. Rick Rigsby // 2018 Keynote Speaker
Keep in touch with your classmates, stay involved with Grantham University activities and groups. Show the world just how great the distance learning community is. Take pride in your education, your university and allow it to take you to the places you have dreamed about.
