WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Guest speaker Tommy McFly, a Washington, D.C., radio personality and Luzerne County Community College alumnus, addressed the Class of 2013 at the college’s 45th annual commencement Thursday, saying, “Today’s the day you decide how much you want to be involved.”

“Whether you’re the next Einstein or the next Snookie, that’s awesome,” McFly said during an energetic speech at the Mohegan Sun Arena, a talk which he peppered with frequent shout-outs to his former teachers.

After graduating from the Nanticoke-based college in 2006, McFly became the co-host of “The Doc Show” on area radio station Froggy 101. Shortly thereafter, McFly went on to become an executive producer of a D.C.-based radio show. Two years later, he was promoted to evening host. In 2010 he was hired by CBS as an on-air personality on the new 94.7 FRESH FM. As the host of the “Tommy Show,” McFly provides insight on entertainment, the media and culture.

For the past two years, McFly served as the official emcee of the White House Easter egg roll and also as the host of the National Tree Lighting preshow.

“You have a million choices ahead of you, and you can do whatever you want,” said McFly. “Never lose your fire or passion. See how far you can push yourself. You’re gonna hit curveballs along the way, but that’s part of the fun.”

In his student address, 30-year-old Brian Zywicki urged his 875 fellow graduates not to be afraid to take risks.

Having earned a bachelor’s degree in biology and philosophy from the University of Scranton in 2005 and a master’s degree in education a year-and-a-half later, Zywicki landed jobs teaching science at Abington Heights High School and Holy Cross High School. “It wasn’t my passion,” Zywicki said during his student address. “It paid well, the benefits were good and I had a pension, but I wasn’t happy. In fact, I was miserable.”

Although he led a comfortable life, Zywicki said he felt he had settled. “We settle for the average — for what’s safe. Safe’s never going to get us anywhere.”

A love of food led Zywicki to pursue his dream of earning a culinary degree. “Don’t live a ‘coulda, shoulda, woulda’ life,” he said. “We all do some pretty dumb things in life, but it’s those things you wish you would have done that you’ll regret the most.”


More than 850 students received their degrees from Luzerne County Community College at the 45th annual commencement ceremony Thursday at the Mohegan Sun Arena.
