MISSISSIPPI STATE UNIVERSITY NEWS Tuck, McCullough Address MSU Winter Grads
Mississippi State graduates received warm send-offs from two successful MSU alumni this past weekend. Lt. Gov. Amy Tuck spoke at the fall semester's Friday night commencement, while former Tupelo mayor Glenn L. McCullough, Jr. addressed the university's Saturday morning program. Tuck, a Maben native, took a moment in the early part of her address to express the state's special thanks to 16 fall graduates who have served in the military during the Iraq war. She later urged all in caps and gowns, to "never stop seeking knowledge," adding, "remember that a good education remains constant, no matter how the world changes. It cannot be lost in the stock market, be eliminated in a corporate downsizing or be taken away in trying economic times." McCullough, now serving as a partner in a Jackson-based executive counsel and development firm, focused his remarks around the four Fs--family, faith, freedom, and future. Students in the Bagley College of Engineering and the colleges of Veterinary Medicine; Agriculture and Life Sciences, including the School of Human Sciences; Forest Resources; and Education received diplomas Friday. Degrees from the colleges of Arts and Sciences; Architecture, Art and Design; and Business and Industry, including the School of Accountancy, were awarded Saturday. Read more, .
