Wicker tells Ole Miss grads to make contributions

Recent graduates have joined an exclusive group, since only 6.7 percent of the world’s population has a college diploma, U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker told University of Mississippi graduates today in the Grove, while rain threatened but never materialized.

“You are part of a very elite group, you have a lot of people to share the credit with and we are expecting a lot from you. In fact, we have a lot riding on your success,” said Wicker, R-Tupelo, who has been heralded for his statesmanship and diplomacy at the state and federal level.
