SHERMAN, TX - Austin College alumnus and former Obama cabinet member Ron Kirk stopped in Sherman Thursday. His message to students? The secret of success is following your dream.
"And whatever it is you want to be in life, own your future and don't be ashamed of that If you wan to dance, you want to paint, you want to be engineer, doctor, lawyer, then put yourself on the path to do that," Kirk told students.
Kirk served as mayor of Dallas from 1995 to 2002, then Texas Secretary of State, before being appointed as U.S. Trade Representative by President Obama.
After his speech, Kirk presented a $10,000 check to the school.
