The weather outside was perfect, clear skies and low humidity. Inside The Theater at Madison Square Garden in Manhattan on Wednesday, it was perfect, too, as 1, 900 City Tech students had their degrees conferred upon them at the College’s 70th commencement exercises.
“I carry the torch for the 39 people who lost their lives in Hurricane Ivan’s devastation of 2004, leading The City University of New York (CUNY) to provide scholarships to citizens of Grenada, ” said City Tech’s 2010 valedictorian, 24-year-old Lerone Bleasdille, a recipient of one of the 15 scholarships offered by CUNY and the Grenada Mission.
In his speech, Bleasdille, who graduated with a bachelor of technology degree in computer systems, said that while such people as Gandhi, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King had changed the world, he didn’t have to look further than the sea of his fellow graduates for inspiration.
“The works of Student Government, New Tech Times newspaper and the 70-plus clubs on campus inspire me. And fellow graduates, as you sit here today, you may not know it, but you are inspiring others: the young brother or sister, nephew or cousin sitting in the audience watching in awe, wondering when you became so cool.” (Click here for the text of Bleasdille’s entire speech)

City Tech President Russell K. Hotzler also acknowledged the College’s 2010 salutatorian Natasha Marcano, 32, who received a BTech degree in communication design. Like the valedictorian, she is an international student born and raised in Trinidad. With the encouragement of her professors, she now has the goal of teaching at the college level.
City Tech’s commencement speaker, New York State Senator Daniel Squadron, said that being in Madison Square Garden made him think about sports and the lessons he’s learned from following two New York teams.
