Augustana College graduated another class during Memorial Day weekend.
Sunday May 25, 2014 was Augie’s 154th commencement at the iWireless Center in Moline. More than 600 students walked at the ceremony.
Representative Cheri Bustos was the commencement speaker and she told the graduates that they need to get out of their comfort zones.
“The personal example that I give is that I would not have had any of the professional achievements or, for that matter, personal achievements that I’ve had, the good fortune of achieving, without getting outside my comfort zone.”
Bustos said Sunday’s ceremony was the first commencement speech she had given since she was elected into congress.
