Graduation ceremonies to be held at Pittsburg State

Updated:

Starting this evening more than 1,000 students will receive their diploma's over the next two days in graduation ceremonies at Pittsburg State University.

What's also important on this day for these graduates will be the message they take away after the ceremony.

Jessica Berberbich and Austin Osborn were nominated by their faculty and administrators and selected by a student committee as the Outstanding Seniors at PSU.

Both will give remarks at this evening's ceremony.

Earlier today we caught up with both to hear what their final message will be to their classmates.

"Following your vision, your dream, trying to be the best at whatever you're attacking in life, whatever your career path is, being the person you can be essentially," says Osborn.

"Now that our generation are the professionals, doctors, lawyers, teachers, and it's our time to step up and take on some of those challenges in the world," says PSU graduate Jessica Berberich.  "Obviously, commencement is a celebratory time but I think it's important for us to be thinking about the new chapters in our life."

The next chapter for Jessica is a teaching job outside of Kansas City she will be teaching high school English.

Austin will go to the University of Oklahoma to law school.
