Student advocate Gwen Dungy calls graduates the "Unstoppable Generation"

Student advocate Dr. Gwendolyn Dungy spoke to 609 graduates May 22 at Gettysburg College's Commencement Exercises, encouraging them to use what they have learned at the College about service, responsibility and passion to "change the direction of the wind." Dungy is the executive director of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA).

"In my conversations with you, it was apparent that you have the vision and the tools to be the Unstoppable Generation. You have big hopes and even bigger dreams," said Dungy of the graduating class. "With confidence, you said that if something threatens to thwart your efforts, you will persist; if you're told you cannot do something, your first response is, 'says who?'"
