Brooklyn Tech Alumni Foundation President Denice (DC) Clarke Ware ‘83 welcomed 1400+ graduating Technites to our alumni ranks at Brooklyn Tech’s commencement on Friday, June 24 at Arthur Ashe Stadium. The historic ceremony featured keynote speaker Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States of America, and special guest speaker New York State Senator Chuck Schumer, both on hand to commemorate Brooklyn Tech’s Centennial.
“Thanks to the openness of Brooklyn Tech and its commitment to excellence and empowerment, the graduates of this school have changed our world for the better,” said Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States of America, in his keynote commencement address Friday to nearly 1500 graduating Technites.
“They have expanded the STEM horizons — in science, technology, engineering and math. Your predecessors have won the Nobel Prize, the Lasker Award, and the National Medal of Technology and Innovation. They have won Olympic Medals, Oscars, Grammys, and much more.” He went on to note the humanitarian significance of scientific contributions of Tech alumni, including the GPS technology that made it possible to locate earthquake victims in Haiti.
In congratulating Tech’s 100th Anniversay class, President Clinton said, “I have great faith in your generation. You have taken a hard hand these last four years and played it well.”
Congratulations to Brooklyn Tech’s 100th Anniversary Class of 2022.
Thanks to the openness of Brooklyn Tech and its commitment to excellence and empowerment, the graduates of this school have changed our world for the better.
42nd President of the United States of America
