Daniel Soules ’76, senior partner with Soules & Dunn Development Group, shared advice to Cayuga Community College “graduates-in-waiting.” His message was to not complicate life, be humble and use common sense. Soules offered thoughts for success to the new graduates about knowing their passion, self-improvement and networking. He said “When you move on, whether its college or whether it’s your career, never stop talking to your peers. Work with them. They’re going to be your greatest asset moving into the future for opportunity, jobs and contacts.”

The graduation ceremony, which took place on Sunday, May 17, celebrated more than 540 students. Families and faculty looked on as Dakota Marshall, one of the recipients of the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for Student Excellence, stressed the importance of peers. Fellow Chancellor’s Award winner Brittany Androsko gave thanks to friends, family and faculty for guiding them this far through their collective journey.

A reception for the Class of ’15 was held after the commencement ceremony in the college’s café, where graduates, family, friends and faculty gathered to celebrate the festivities.
