“Stop dreaming. Start doing. And never give up.”
On Friday, McKinney chairman and CEO Brad Brinegar delivered the commencement address for the Class of 2018 at the Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham — the 30th class in the institution’s history. During the course of his speech, he laid out six keys to help graduates find their way to successful careers and, in the process, fulfilling lives.
In his remarks, Brinegar urged the graduates to “dive deep and swim hard.” And he focused on the importance of grit, initiative, and action, telling them that the course of their life was up to them. “Just remember,” he said. “It’s all in your hands.”
