2014 Graduation at Pamlico Correctional Institution for Pamlico Community College students.
General Tom Bratten, USMC Ret., delivered the Commencement address for over 100 students graduating from a variety of Pamlico Community College occupational certificate programs at the Pamlico Correctional Institution in Bayboro, Monday, June 30. He was introduced by PCC President Cleve H. Cox.
General Bratten reminded the graduates of the hard work required to become better educated, but reminded them that even with the knowledge they had gained, “The rock-solid base deep inside which will allow you to succeed requires another element beyond knowledge. It requires heart. It’s that something inside you that drives you to have the incentive to succeed.” He emphasized that point by visually by gently striking his chest over his heart.
Christian Jones, a graduate of both the upholstery and masonry programs addressed his classmates at the conclusion of General Bratten’s remarks. He told his classmates of the confidence he had gained by observing that all students were learners and that one should not be ashamed of first time attempts in any occupation. He said, “I have gained skills in things I thought were beyond my abilities. I can definitely see myself using what I have learned to have a better life when I leave here.”
At the conclusion of the ceremony, Superintendent Faye Daniels thanked Pamlico Community College personnel for their efforts to help some very talented individuals change the direction of their lives.
