Eplunus Colvin delivered a moving message to the graduates of Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas (PCCUA) campuses in Stuttgart and DeWitt Thursday evening in the College’s main lobby on the Stuttgart campus.

Colvin, who is a journalist for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette/Pine Bluff Commercial and former editor and reporter of the Stuttgart Daily Leader, used her personal story to encourage students to realize their purpose in life. Through humor and touching anecdotes, she engaged the graduates and family members in attendance. Colvin detailed critical turning points in her life to show how sometimes what we want is not always what we need, but through these difficult times, we can learn to persevere. And the journey through the hills and valleys of life can lead us to the very place we are able to realize our true purpose in life.
