MADISON COUNTY, N.Y. -- SUNY Morrisville graduates heard from one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the area.
The Founder and President of Chobani Yogurt served as commencement speaker Saturday. Hamdi Ulukaya shared his recipe for success with the students, which was to work hard and be passionate about what you do.
Ulukaya said, “I truly believe in passion, I truly believe in starting on something. I mean that's what we did in South Edmeston when we started Chobani. With 5 people we started painting the walls, that was our first assignment. And along the way, you don't know all the answers, you have plans, you have big dreams but while you're doing it whatever it is when you start it things come, and you'll find out."
The Syracuse Scottish Pipe band set the mood Saturday, providing music for the ceremony.
