am so proud to be a part of the PTS Class of 2013. The generosity
and prayers of the sponsors throughout my college career has helped
me. For this I am eternally grateful. To my dear scholars, never
take for granted or forget the people who have helped you become the
person you are today, remember to always persevere and pray. There
will be many times where we need to let go and let God help us. To
my dear graduates, the road ahead may be foggy and uncertain but
remember that God has a plan for us. I wish you all the best in
your endeavors after graduation.”
