Tech Grads Told To "Sing"

Write your own song in life and sing it out loud. That was the message to Tennessee Tech University graduates Saturday from speaker John W. Rose, a Tech alumnus, farmer, entrepreneur and public servant. Degrees were presented to 721 men and women during ceremonies at Hooper Eblen Center. Saturday's TTU graduates hail from 72 Tennessee counties, 26 states and 12 other countries. The undergraduate degrees awarded represent 40 fields of study and those who received graduate degrees represent 20 fields. The oldest graduate was born in 1918; the youngest in 1989. To date, more than 66,000 graduates have received degrees from Tech.
