MSU Commencement Speaker

First Student To Deliver Speech In MSU History

WICHITA FALLS, TX - Ranking the highest in her class, there's no doubt that she deserves this honor to speak in front of her peers.  
 
For many students like Megan, graduation is one of the most exciting days to look forward to
 
But for this 22 year old, graduation has a greater meaning
 
Commencement speaker, Megan Piehler said "it's just a humbling experience, it's not something i ever even dreamed of having the opportunity to get to do." 
 
Working hard always has it's rewards. Megan has maintained her 4.0 GPA throughout her 4 years at MSU and received the Hardin Scholar Award which is the highest award given to a student in the state. 
 
"The 2016 Hardin Scholar was pretty incredible but honestly I think it's determination and perserverance that got me there," Megan.
 
And there also means on stage, in front of hundreds, giving the commencement speech, as the first student to ever do so. 
 
"When I got the call, and they asked me if I wanted to be the commencement speaker, it still didn't register," Megan said. "I was like sure but in my head it was, oh I'm speaking at commencement and it wasn't until it was announced on the news and everyone was making a big deal out of it that it really hit, oh I'm the commencement speaker." 
 
Vice President of Student Affairs Keith Lamb says she deserves it all
 
"Megan is one of our best and brightest. She has participated in so much that the university has to offer. She has a poise beyond her years, a poise beyond my years as well," Dr. Lamb said. "You just run across a few like that in a generation and, yeah she's great." 
 
And the skies the limit for this bright young scholar.
