U.S. Senator Johnson to School of Mines graduates: 'Speak up'

Posted:

Nearly 150 new graduates are entering the working world. 

Saturday, the School of Mines and Technology held a winter graduation ceremony.  U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D) delivered the graduation address in which he urged students to 'speak up' because he says the world needs fresh ideas. 

He also reminded students not to be discouraged if it takes time to change the world because 'if it was easy someone would have done it already.'

Johnson ended his speech by saying that at graduation, students picked up their diplomas, but next he hopes they pick up a hammer and 'start their life's project.'
