Wright State University President Cheryl Schrader told graduates Saturday at the school’s spring commence ceremony to make a difference in other people’s lives, saying “people will judge you for who you are, not what you do.”
“I have seen firsthand your passion for helping others,” Schrader said. “Never forget that one person can make a difference.”

The class of 2018 includes graduates with 1,429 bachelor’s degrees and 602 master’s degrees as well as those awarded associate degrees and post-master’s certificates.
