Central Georgia Technical College Holds 18th Commencement Ceremony

The Honorable Robert Reichert, Mayor of the City of Macon, addressed the class of 2008 as keynote speaker at Central Georgia Technical College’s 18th Commencement Ceremony, held on June 18.

Reichert gave the newly minted graduates a few words of advice, "First, not having goals in life is like a ship that sets sail without a destination," he said. "Secondly, be open to the idea of change in your destination. Finally, enjoy the voyage."
