Welcome to Wake Technical Community College's Spring Commencement
exercise
It's a pleasure for the Trustees, for the faculty and staff
to share this special day
honoring the graduates in the class
of 2012
Today over a thousand people are eligible to graduate
>>What a privilege it is for me to address you on this exciting occasion of your
commencement
and since Wake Tech's campus is in the district I represent
and it's the
crown jewel of the academics of Wake County
I feel it's my mission in life to do whatever Dr. Scott and the Trustees
ask me to do
(laughs)
Gotta keep them happy
They also asked me to be brief, so brief I shall be
A good teacher
brings something old and something new
and I'd like to share
something old and something new, it was the tradition for maybe a thousand years in
the west
that commencement addresses were in Latin
That's so the people from all different places could understand it, and the
common language. That's changed - you'll find as you go around the world now, English
is the common trade language
wherever you go, although it's certainly not the heart language, and you have to learn
other languages as you do business around the state
But I thought I'd give you a little taste of that old Latin so you
could tell your
friends that you actually had the old traditions here
and I've picked a few little
snippets
from my own profession, that is law and justice, but some of this applies
to you as engineers, those in the information technology, especially
those in business
and I'll just say a brief little word about each of them - the first one
and mostly in English, if you prefer that 0:02:41.299,0:02:45.419 The first one is a just decree commanding what is right
and forbidding the contrary, in other words
That's what we go to law school to learn is justice
but guess what
it's not
fixed in time
what I have to learn
You've learned engineering
but guess what - in ten years, they are going to be new things to learn
You have to constantly be learning, you learn
how to learn at Wake Tech
You haven't finish learning
There's a second one, and this one comes from
871 AD
from the Dome book of the 'Liber Judicialis' of King Alfred the Great
of England
He said this, 'I again and again command all who are sent over the state that
they show themselves just
judges to all as it is written in in the judicial book
and this, and that no
fear
deter them from declaring the common law boldly and freely'
In England,
Every little community had its
law, it had its prejudices, it had its customs
but these folks were sent around the by the King
to declare the King's Law that is the common law of England without fear
and now that you have a degree,
you have a right
to practice in that field
without fear
It doesn't mean without
some trepidation,
and a lot of, you need a lot of experience
but you really do know something and you need not be afraid of the mob, or
your friends
or
being ashamed of what you know, you actually know something, and you have become
an expert in your field
The third one is from Magna Carta
1215 AD. This is what King -
You certainly saw 'Robin Hood' when you were kids, right?
or the movies - this is about the Sheriff of Nottingham and bad old King John
and this is what he had to
pledge in order to keep his crown
and probably to keep his head on
He had to promise in writing this - 'to no one will we sell,
to no one deny or delay,
right or justice',
and since that one is so important
I'll just give you a little taste of it - 'Nulli vendemus, nulli negabimus 0:05:10.490,0:05:14.360 aut differemus rectum aut justiciam'
and what that means is –
get your business done quickly,
get it done right,
and with justice
