Minister Davis Congratulates Post-Secondary Graduates

Mr. Speaker, it is truly an honour to rise today in this Honourable House to congratulate graduates of our province’s public and private post-secondary education institutions.

Every graduate represents an extraordinary accomplishment, as well as a stronger, more educated workforce and that is key to growing our society, culture and economy.

Every year, thousands of graduates complete world-class programs at College of the North Atlantic and private training institutions. This year is a remarkable one for Memorial University as well, which granted its 100,000th degree. The value of post-secondary education for students, families, communities and our whole province is immeasurable.

Education is the passport to a brighter future. I invite all members of this Honourable House to join me in congratulating all 2019 post-secondary graduates.

Thank you.
