Fall 2016 Commencement Student Speaker

Katherine Wolfe of Defiance was the student speaker at Northwest State’s fall commencement ceremony. Katherine graduated Summa Cum Laude with an associate degree in nursing. She is also a member of Phi Theta Kappa and Alpha Delta Nu honor societies.

During her speech, Wolfe mentioned that her nursing degree “represents a mid-life career change…one that (she) never expected,” a truth shared by other fall graduates as well. Wolfe continued, “You are only as happy as you make up your mind you’re going to be. It’s less about possessions, and fully about attitude. Count your blessings and be happy.”
