Eugene Pettis addressing UF law grads/Maggie Powers

THE FLORIDA BAR PRESIDENT-ELECT EUGENE PETTIS urged University of Florida Levin College of Law graduates at their commencement May 10 to build careers based upon service to others, to be courageous, and to make sacrifices for what they know to be right. “I hope that each of you will be defined by not where you come from, but by where you want to go, by what you want to achieve, and by the dreams that you want to fulfill,” said Pettis, a 1985 UF Law graduate. “To each of you, I pray that you will be the difference that this profession needs and that this world needs.” — Jenna Box
