award the golden Triton award is given to one faculty member and one staff
member each year in recognition of their excellent service to Iowa Central
Community College students the recipients of this award are nominated
by current Iowa central students this year’s faculty nomination shows
characteristics of a true Triton he is quote always fair honest very courteous
and is always there to help you at any time of the day he isn’t here for the
money he’s here to help students succeed graduate and is even there for students
who have graduated isn’t that what being a teacher is all about congratulations
on being the 2017 recipient of the golden Triton mr. EDD Vig this year we had many staff nominations

cared about each and every one of us as a musician’s person and student he gives
us the guidance we need to be successful in and out of the classroom his love of
Iowa central shows it is my honor tonight to present this award to mr.
Jeromy Smith good evening graduates friends family
staff faculty and administration of Iowa Central Community College I am Ben
Kenobi and I have had the honor of serving as your student body president
this past school year I would like to start out by saying how proud I am of
each and every one of you for accomplishing your professional and
personal goals that you have set for yourself and how these make you a part
of the Titan family did you know Iowa Central was organized
51 years ago in 1966 and on the firm foundation of three junior colleges they
were Fort Dodge Webster City and Eagle Grove we all know Iowa Central’s mascot
is a Triton but how many of you truly know what a Triton is let’s take a trip
back to mythological times it starts with Poseidon god of the sea Poseidon
and his wife had a son which made them a family of three they named their son
Triton which means messenger of the sea Iowa Central is famous for being
associated with the iconic symbol of a trident which is a three-pronged fork
for example oh excuse me there are multiple symbolic reasons regarding the
importance of a trident for example our days are broken into morning noon and
night the three L’s live laugh love beginning middle and end and the Triton
also represents past present and future in some way shape or form
our paths have all crossed past with each other if it was coming to freshman
orientation moving into the apartments standing in line at the bookstore or
getting lost at least five times in the first week of classes whatever this
whatever the scenario may be at one of those moments we became a part of the
Triton family and regardless of our past endeavors whether they are positive or
negative that made you sitting where you are today and that leads to my next
point we are all currently sitting here in Hodges Fieldhouse it might be a
little warm in here or that could be just me graduates I want you to stop and
look around you may see the face of your friends family or even a complete
stranger honestly it doesn’t matter who you made eye contact with because
there’s one person who decided to stay motivated
even though we all said I’m dropping out and that person is you so be proud of
yourself I’m going to be honest with you the word future sends chills down my
back because that means I don’t know what will happen but whatever I whatever
does happen I know I’m grateful for my experiences at Iowa Central all of us
have different places to go in the future whether it’s to transfer on go
into the workforce or even travel the world but who knows our paths might
cross again in the future but whatever it may be embrace every moment to your
fullest potential as I bring my speech to a close I want to say how honored and
humbled I am to be given the opportunity to speak to you today I’m sad to say
that this is the end of my journey at Iowa central it’s been a great three
years and I’m really going to miss it I want to end with a quote with a little
twist on it Albus Dumbledore from Harry Potter from the Harry Potter movies once
said while we come from different places and speak in different tongues our
hearts beat as one as a part of the trenton family thank you god take a
selfie so I bet this feels like high school
again right y’all sit in there and your caps and gowns being forced to lit I
mean blessed to listen to somebody behind a microphone for a few minutes of
barely well-written babbling however this moment is different and frankly so
much more incredible than back then we’ve all congregated to this bustling
metropolis of Fort Dodge Iowa or deserted village for my friends over
there in Chicago for what to look out the windows and see corn every day or
soybeans no we all came here to further our education whether it’s to help us on
to a four-year university or to dive directly into the workforce essentially
we all get the slip of paper with dr. Kenny’s impressive italic signature and
move on as more esteemed citizens in society but what else one to potentially
three years for a simple piece of paper and a societal popularity boost it seems
kind of anticlimactic not that dr. Kinney signature won’t be
one of my most cherished possessions but for me I realized that the real success
the pinnacle of our collegiate achievement lies not within a degree but
within the relationships we’ve made along the way the people here they care
about us they open up about their lives for us to help and open our own pathways
in life how else would I have grown in my faith in college if it weren’t for
Rachel Black’s incredible contribution through University how else would I know
how to save my pets from please if it weren’t for doctor and veterinary
background oh and most importantly how else would I know what to get at
Starbucks if it were for my coach Brown recommending a mm-hmm
triple venti white mocha with six pumps no milk no whipped cream and stirred
please and the students these professors
advisers and coaches encounter are second to none Iowa Central is such a
blessing with its presence of diversity in such a
tight-knit small community feel in an eight-hour span of my typical day I see
peers from all around the world the Dominican Republic Canada Colombia and
England to name a few and then my teammates from Jamaica Kenya Poland
Barbados Australia and Ethiopia oh and I’m telling you guys if you haven’t
eaten Ethiopian food yet you haven’t lived so go find a guy named Asher Roby
in the back I see him there ask for injera inj er eh you’ll thank me later
trust me so good and with the people I’ve met in these friends I’ve made I
have more incentive to go travel the world because now I have some friends to
see wherever I land and who knew that that would come from here in Fort Dodge
Iowa now while many of us won’t pack our bags buy a plane ticket and flaunt our
shiny new degrees around the world we will all experience a significant change
in the near future no matter what and the people that we’ve met on this
journey that close circle we’ve made with our best friends we need to cling
to them now more than ever as we venture into new jobs new colleges and new
cities heck we truly don’t know where we’re going to end up and that’s why we
need these relationships so don’t burn any bridges even if you are a pyromaniac
I’m so thankful that I’ll always have a familiar face around the world even if I
find myself in southeastern Australia Poland Spain Israel or some village
called Lorenz Iowa population of 20 been 30 okay it’s only them there’s so much
change to come for all of us and and for what what are we reaching for anyway and
why are we reaching for it well to answer those questions I would have to
know the meaning of life and that’s a question for the big guy upstairs but I
can make an educated guess on this by reflecting on my own life experiences at
my wise old age of 20 so take it with a grain of salt I believe that we’re here
for a reason and we’ve all been given inherent talents gifts and a
ladies that may be either active or dormant at the moment therefore whether
you know your passion your talent your gift or not just go start working hard
and whatever path is lying before you in my life the most joyful journeys and
moments stem from putting dedication and effort into improving these abilities
and not just alone but with other like-minded people and that’s the key
after two years of running alongside incredible people on the Tritan track
and cross-country teams and performing alongside the most talented and genuine
people in the performing arts department I can confidently say that the people
around you and your passions will contribute most to your joy your
happiness and your success so like any renowned speaker which I am NOT I’m
going to leave all of you with a challenge and if you take anything away
from this speech which is gone for minutes or so I didn’t really time and
I’m lying take away these next three sentences one embrace everything as if
it happens for a good reason to seek happiness and joy in all that you do in
the Monday mornings and the long lines at lunch and on the rainy days where you
forgot an umbrella three get lost in the beauty of every moment as the famous
Canadian philosopher Eminem once said lose yourself in the music the moment
you own it don’t you ever let it go you only get one shot do not miss your
chance to blow this opportunity comes once in a lifetime
yo so graduates let’s take our shot and as
Percy blank Andy would sing never hold back your step for a moment never doubt
that your courage will grow hold your head even higher and into the fire we go
god bless thank you all right so that was a very it’s an old
farewell song is popular in Scotland and Ireland before auld lang syne was
written it’s a happy and a sad song because on one hand we’re saying goodbye
to our friends and wishing each other well however we’re not sure if we’re
ever gonna see each other again but we’re gonna make it the best of the time
that we have left this is the parting glass of all the money that a de hija I
sent is good and all the horn I’ve ever done it was to none but me and all i ha we call so fill to me the parting glass
good night and joy be so fill to me the parting glass and drink ahead whatever
falls and gently rise and softly call good night and joy be to of all the comrades that hair I had
there sorry for my going away I had they wished me one more day to say but since
it fell into my thought that I should rise and you should not I gently rise
and softly call good night and joy be to die I die die die die die die die die die
die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die die
die die die die die die die ha but since it fell into my lot and I
should rise and you sure but I gently rise and softly call good
night enjoy me too all so fill to me the parting glass and
drink aha what a B balls and gently rise and softly call good I had to good I have an important task to do but
before I do that I gotta make one quick observation there can be absolutely no
question in anyone’s mind who mr. Jackson’s mother is I met she’s our
director of theater here and I met with him before the graduation at the dinner
and said are you as long-winded as your mother and he’s not but he’s equally as
dramatic as she is so well done now the important things and I have to use my
