You Get a Degree!! And You Get a Degree!!

"JCSU, your future is so bright, it burns my eyes!"

“JCSU, your future is so bright, it burns my eyes!”

When I first got the word that Oprah Winfrey would be giving the commencement address at Johnson C. Smith University I thought how lucky the students are to have such  successful person give them a lesson on what their lives could be. Commencement is the end of a long journey, but it is also the start of a new life. Ms. Winfrey let the students know that the road wasn’t always perfect for her. You will have those times that test you, but don’t give up because “JCSU, your future is so bright, it burns my eyes!”

The Spring class of 2016 was treated to the inspirational words of Oprah Winfrey. "JCSU, your future is so bright, it burns my eyes!" were some of the inspiring words from the media mogul. Ms. Winfrey was in Charlotte to celebrate the graduation of Noluthando “Thando” Dlomo and Nompumelelo “Mpumi” Nobiva. Both young ladies were graduates of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.
