My fellow students, friends, and colleagues. After eight long years, it's steadily rounding what once felt like, an endless track, but I can see it now. A man holding the black and white checkered flag at the end of the finish line. In less than a week, I will have received a great Education from St. Cloud State University, thanks to all of the fine professors in the Mass Communications Department. Here we have had a high degree of academic excellence and whether you intend to continue in your field or not, you will benefit from what you learned here at St. Cloud State.
What once was an unfathomable and distant fantasy, is now becoming a reality. Exciting and nerve wrecking all at the same time. What will become of me? Who will give me a chance and let me go the distance with their organization? I have proven time and time again, that I have inside of me what it takes in this fast paced world. This agency has taught me the true understanding of the fast paced, deadline orientated advertising realm. With a better understanding, I can genuinely say I am more prepared to head to Minneapolis to chase my dream.
Before, all I knew was wrestling. Wrestling was my life, it consumed me. Like an Etch-A-Sketch toy, my wrestling career had a bunch of solid twisting lines that I put countless time into skillfully crafting, yet most of them I couldn't see connecting happily to my future. So after my freshman year of college, I hung up my wrestling shoes and decided to be a happier person and want more for myself. It was a bittersweet decision. Since then, I have acquired a vast amount of skills that I would have not been able to get while wrestling. Needless to say, this sport taught me immeasurable life skills that I would of never experienced. Wrestling has made me the man I am today. Wrestling is and always will be one of my passions. After I graduate, in my free time, I plan on going back and leading my high school's varsity wrestling team practices. I have put on a little weight living in St. Cloud over the years, so it will a good thing.
The bonds I have made in these last few years of college and in wrestling will last forever.
Here's some but not all of the people in my life I would like to thank for making me the man I am today: My parents Kirk and Carrie Fleming, my brother Taylor Fleming, and my little sister Madison Fleming. Pat Neu. Kelly Wagner, Joe Traen, Kurt Becker, and Bill Mcdonald. Jay Robinson, Ty Eustice, Brandon Paulsen, Brandon Eggum, Chad Erickson, Leeroy Vega, Brock Lesnar (yes he was my coach), Pat Levassar & Mr. Levasser, Ben Morgan & Gordy Morgan, Joe Brady & Patrick Brady, Joey Stadnick & Ricky Yabarra, The Schrupps, Mr. Thorn & David Thorn, Danny Zilverburg & Mr. Zilverburg, Dylan Ness and Mr. Ness. Mark Eden, Roger Rudolph, Jeff Palm, Dale Zacher, all the teachers in the MCOM Dept. & everyone in our Fourth Avenue Design Student Advertising Agency.
