Governor Tom Corbett made a stop in Lancaster to serve as Keynote Speaker for the 2012 graduates of Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology.
The governor spoke to nearly 300 graduating students at the state owned technical school.
He urged them to take the values of Thaddeus Stevens himself, along with the skills they learned in their two years at the school to help others.
"The things you take from today, from this day, I hope will be that your skills, your training, the knowledge that you have gained, can shape your future and the future of others," the Governor said.
Since the school was founded in 1905, more than 90-percent of graduates have remained in Pennsylvania.
