Astronauts and Advocates to speak at College's Convocation.

 
 
LETHBRIDGE--Lethbridge College graduates will be getting a fair share of advice at Convocation 2011. 

Retired NASA Col Rick Searfoss is the guest speaker for the students and Lethbridge College's Honorary Degree Recipient Beverly Hungry Wolf will also address the students. 

Searfoss, who has piloted two space missions and has spent over nine hundred hours in space says he will gear his address to the theme of Dreams, Hopes and Realities. 

"I'm all about telling stories.  I'll talk about principles today of course, but I'll try to hang them on stories and that's really the unique thing," says Searfoss. 

Along with Searfoss, Lethbridge College Honorary Degree Recipient Beverly Hungry Wolf will also talk to the students.  Hungry Wolf received her honorary degree based on her traditional teachings and practices mentoring First Nations students. 

"It's a great honour especially since I'm receiving it in my home territory and it's a great validation of my people," says Hungry Wolf. 

Hungry Wolf received her degree at the Thursday ceremony and will speak to both groups of convocates. 

Convocation Ceremonies were held in the College's Val Matteoti Gym on Thursday at 2 p.m. and Friday 10 a.m.
