SUMMIT, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Graduates at Southwest Mississippi Community College were treated to some words of wisdom from a very important member of the WLBT family. 

Ted Fortenberry, our vice president and general manager, served as the commencement speaker at today's graduation. Ted is actually a graduate of Southwest and says it was nothing short of an honor to speak to the class of 2016. 

He says he's never been a commencement speaker before but was glad that his first speech was given at his alma mater. 

"I'm very honored and flattered to be able to come back, especially somewhere where I'd gone to school, so I had great memories from here," said Fortenberry. "You know being back at Southwest, being a part of the past in my life, it was just a great opportunity to be here and be with the students today."

Fortenberry urged today's graduates not be afraid to chase their dreams and to set high goals.
