Families, friends, classmates, and colleagues of Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus gathered in the Main Arena in the Community Center on Saturday, May 4, for the 43rd Annual Commencement ceremony. Robert E. Eberly, Jr. was the featured speaker at the ceremony. He shared a number of thoughts and insights with the graduates. In part, Eberly said, “Never be afraid to have a dream, and to nurture it and work towards its fulfillment.” He also noted the importance of loved ones when embarking on a lifelong journey: “Never forget to make time for your own families. Your careers are vital, of course, and giving of your spare time to charitable endeavors and your community is commendable, but in the grand scheme of things, family is paramount. It is what endures and gives the deepest meaning to our lives. I am reminded of that every time I return to this campus.”
