Texas College Welcomes Special Commencement Speaker

In Tyler, Texas College held its 113th commencement.  Ninety students received their diplomas this morning, but all eyes were on one man, Emmanuel Lewis.  You may recognize this showbiz veteran from the hit television show Webster.  Lewis was Saturday morning's commencement speaker.  

"Don't give your dreams to dream stealers," said Emmanuel Lewis.  "Tuck them underneath your arm and run with it.  Don't be afraid to fail.  Be more afraid of not trying at all."   

A special recognition today was given to Della Ann Hamilton turner, 101, the oldest living Texas College graduate. She received her Bachelor of Arts degree in 1937.
