“I commend you for taking on the task of being a leader,” Wertz said. “Your willingness and dedication to completing the membership requirements is the first step in a larger journey you now share with your fellow members. You’re proving your dedication to learning and building skills to improve yourself and others.”
She continued, “Tonight, you join over 1,400 Edison State members and alumni committed to the Society’s mission. We build leaders who make a better world. As leaders, you’re on a journey, always learning and working with others. You’re risk-takers. You’re authentic. You inspire passion. You motivate followers. You empower others. You learn from your mistakes, and you’re so many other things. As you continue your journey, be the best person you can be. Continue to learn. Enlist the support of others. Get up and dust yourself off when you fail. And never, ever give up.”
