Commencement Speaker

Joseph Yarsiah

Commencement speaker Joseph (Jay) Yarsiah came to the United States from Liberia, West Africa. Jay grew to manhood during a fourteen-year genocidal civil war. By any conventional wisdom, the atrocities he witnessed would have justified a life of violent retribution. Yet Jay chose a different path, dedicating his life instead to the cause of human rights in his troubled nation and all of Africa.

   Delphian exists to empower young adults as agents of positive change through reason, creativity and integrity. We’ve found a kindred spirit in Jay Yarsiah. His is a voice for hope, responsibility and redemption in a world that can and will only endure through the fostering of such qualities.

   Delphian extends its warmest thanks to Jay for his inspiring speech to the Class of 2017 and our Commencement audience.
