It was delivered to a large crowd of graduates, family members, friends and well-wishers. Also present for the occasion was President David Granger, Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo, Minister of Education Dr. Rupert Roopnaraine and members of the Diplomatic Community.During his address, Chancellor Harris saw the graduation as an important milestone in one’s life. He added that this achievement would have been accomplished through the aid of a “village of persons” who guided individual students to success.He went on to say that UG has been the home to great intellectuals over the years, including historian Dr. Walter Rodney and economist Dr. Clive Thomas. He said that these persons, after graduation,Jerseys Wholesale, went on to become recognised for their sterling contributions.“You should be very proud of the contributions this university has made. Many of those contributions have gone unrecognised,China Jerseys Cheap,” he stressed.He urged the graduates to learn more about the university’s history.“I urge you to become familiar with the history of your university and, in so doing, gain a better appreciation for the absolute need for you to continue to remain engaged,” he said.He said that UG’s alumni could engage through multiple forms, including by becoming mentors to future students and donors of scholarships and other gifts that “will build this institution.”Harris outlined the benefits of a university education, including increased lifetime earnings, greater chance of job mobility,Wholesale NFL Jerseys China, and the capacity to be better informed and more socially involved.He added that these benefits also trickle down to the graduates’ children, who he said are more likely to pursue higher education themselves.“Thus, a university education benefits not only graduands themselves but it extends to their generations after,” Professor Harris emphasised.He said that while a university education is important, it was equally important that the students possessed initiative outside of their education.“You will find that often there has been little correlation between those that have been at the top of their classes and those who will ultimately do best…It is those with initiative that will prevail,” he stressed.He said that over time there had been complaints from employees throughout the region that university graduates are not prepared for the jobs available.  This is an unrealistic expectation,Wholesale Jerseys From China, he added.Graduates fresh out of university should be expected to have the persistence to become qualified in whatever they must do. He added that they can become qualified by aggressively pursuing knowledge through Information and Communications Technology (ICT) modalities and perusing journal and other sources in an attempt to be the best at what they do and to keep abreast with new developments in their fields.Harris further urged the graduates to break away from the status quo. In fact, he emphasised that the nation as a whole must move beyond the status quo. He added that the aforementioned trait of initiative must be coupled with persistence and passion for true success.“There are many persons with sufficient talent and ability to enable change but those persons must be imbued with initiative, persistence, passion and determination to get things done,” Harris said.He called on the graduates to not limit themselves to the jobs assigned to them. Rather, he urged them to strive to identify new ways to make better the organisations they will eventually become a part of.“I urge all gathered here to commit to do all things necessary to make this University of Guyana one which we can continue to be proud of,” he ended.
