LOCAL STUDENT DELIVERED SENIOR CLASS MESSAGE AT SOUTH DAKOTA SCHOOL OF MINES AND TECHNOLOGY COMMENCEMENT ON MAY 13, 2000
Charles Cox of Yankton delivered the senior class message at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology’s 141st Commencement Ceremony this past Saturday, May 13, 2000. The ceremony was held at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center Arena at 10: 00 am. Cox is the son of Jim and Betty Cox. He is a mechanical engineering graduate, who is currently entertaining job offers from national and international companies.
During his four years on campus Cox has been active in many clubs and organizations that include holding positions as President and Vice- President of the Student Association, member of the M- Week Committee, Orientation Leader, and a variety of positions with Triangle Fraternity. Chuck has been active with the Society of Automotive Engineers, Hardrocker Racing Team, and Tech Soccer Team. Additionally, he has participated in a variety of intramural sports teams, community theatre productions, and was crowned SDSM& T Homecoming King in 1998.
“ The most memorable thing about Tech is the traditions of M- Week and homecoming,” said Cox. “ I felt so honored to represent the school as the 1998 Homecoming King and enjoyed the fun and excitement of the week. I also remember and value the friendships that I made and will keep forever,” he added.
When asked what one piece of advice he would give to incoming freshman, Cox responded, “ Take your time and have fun in school. Get out and get involved on campus. Enjoy college life but remember why you are there.”
