Dr. Calvin O. Butts III, President of SUNY College at Old Westbury, was the commencement speaker on June 26 at Henry Viscardi School at The Viscardi Center, which serves children with severe physical disabilities. During his speech to the graduates, Dr. Butts focused on believing in themselves, others in their lives, and the methods which had successfully gotten them to where they are today. He also spoke about the importance of education and believing in what you’re striving towards. “Without a trained mind and an inspired heart, you’ll go nowhere,” said Dr. Butts. He also thanked the faculty for befriending the students and noted the active role they, and the graduates’ family and friends, played in preparing them for graduation, as well as the trust the students had put in all of them over the years.
