Isaiah Davis (Class of 2023) of Fort Worth, Texas, was the student speaker representing the Elmer R. Smith College of Business & Technology. As an MSU student-athlete, Davis was a starting wide receiver, kick returner, and special teams player for MSU Football and was part of the team's Leadership Council. He plans to pursue a master's degree, potentially a Master of Business Administration (MBA).  

"Despite my story being my own, every student here has had their own story here at Morehead State. Their own set of challenges, their own set of trials, where they fought, persevered, and stayed patient and firm, even on the days when they felt they couldn't any longer," Davis said. "However, they did. Y'all did. You made it! And I'm so proud and respect every single one of y'all for your perseverance."
