Tech grads, speaker define success
When Holland, Pa., graduate Ann Marie Dickson walked across the stage to receive her diploma at Louisiana Tech’s graduation ceremony Saturday, she was not the first in her family.
“I will be a third generation Tech graduate,” Dickson, a general studies graduate, said. “My grandfather and dad went to Tech. Also, my aunt and two uncles. I will be the sixth brick.”
Dickson transferred to Tech in 2010 and said though she hasn’t been at Tech long, she still feels home.
“I have been looking forward to this day from the first day I set foot on Tech’s campus,” she said. “I have only been attending Tech for a year and a half because of transferring, but I feel as much a part of the Tech family as if I had started as a freshman.”
