Solicitor tells grads to 'cherish path to your degree'
MAY 20, 2020

Barry Barnette is Solicitor for the 7th Judicial Circuit.
 

Congratulations to the Class of 2020. It is a wonderful time to celebrate your accomplishments and look forward to future opportunities. I realize your celebration is different than you ever envisioned but I encourage you to cherish the path to your degree, the valuable relationships established along the way and the creative celebrations that are occurring.

I challenge you to pursue your dreams and take advantage of any opportunity that allows you to develop your talents. After my high school graduation, I worked hard to be the best chemistry teacher that I could be and later began practicing law. That career decision led me to become a judge and a prosecutor. I quickly discovered the parallels between the legal and education professions. Both careers require communication, research and writing skills. The similarities helped me to make a smooth transition into my career. I hope your choices will lead to success and happiness in the future.
