Commencement AddressHector Toledo, Chairman of the Board of Trustees
Good Evening! On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I want to offer congratulations to the Class of 2012.Tonight is a night to celebrate your accomplishments
to enjoy the moment with your family, yourfriends, and the professors who have guided you.
It’s quite an accomplishment. Graduating is no easy feat. When you first made the decision to come toSTCC, I’m sure it was a weighted decision.
STCC may have been your first choice
a place you decidedwas best for you to achieve your
career goals. It may have been your “safety” school. And for some of 
you, it may have been the only economical way to begin your college education. Whatever situationbrought you to STCC, tonight is the night to look back and reflect; to see how far you have come; to lookahead to see the bright future in front of you.The late
Apple CEO Steve Jobs once said, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’slife.”
 By making the choice to make your education a priority,
you’ve made
a positive change which will
impact your life and the lives of others through your skillsets. You’re making
your 
dreams come true andreaching for
your 
goals.
You’re living your life and reaching for the life you hope t
o have.
I’m here tonight
speaking to you not only as the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, but also as a fellowSTCC graduate. It w

that long ago that my wife and I also sat where you are sitting right now. Notsure of what was to come next.My pride for STCC was never higher than it was this past December. I was at Baystate Medical visitingwith my father when an STCC student nurse came to check on him and to do his vitals. The care andconcern the nurses showed my father was further enhanced by a clear concern for not
only my father’s
physical well-being, but also
my family’s emotional well
-being. Little did they know that it would be oneof the last few days of my dear father
s life
days that were made a little better by the gentle andgenuine care they showed to my dear old dad. It made me very proud to know that the place Igraduated from, the place I am now lucky enough to be the Chair of, the place you are all graduating
