Intelligence plus character, that is the twin goal.”  Mrs. Dorsette-Hector invited the gathering to consider adopting such core values as Integrity, Intellectual Freedom, Excellence, Civic Responsibility, Accessibility, Diversity and Equity.  She reminded the graduates to share their knowledge and skills with others and ended by saying, “your integrity is always under the microscope, you cannot afford to have it contaminated.  Make a difference, be the change that you want to see.”
