Beshear offers advice to UPike graduates

PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) - The University of Pikeville held its commencement today at the Eastern Kentucky Exposition Center in Pikeville.

Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear recognized more than 300 graduates from the class of 2014. Beshear says there is one piece of life advice every graduate should try their best to follow.

"Listen. Listen to what others say. It's easy to talk. It's a lot harder to listen and to learn and you've got to do both," Beshear says. "You've got to be able to express yourself, but you've also got to listen to what others think, that's the way you can actually bring people together and make good things happen."

As part of the commencement ceremony, Governor Beshear received an honorary degree from the University of Pikeville.
