TISHOMINGO, OK -- Hundreds of new college graduates were given some tips on their future from the governor of Oklahoma.

Nearly 400 students received their associate's degrees at Murray State College on Friday night.

Governor Mary Fallin delivered the commencement speech, talking about her family coming to the state in a covered wagon and being the state's first woman governor.

"To continue their education and to stay in Oklahoma so that way, whatever they gradated in will help Oklahoma's economy, so that was the message that I got from it," says one graduate's aunt Edna Ross.

One family from the Tulsa area told me that it was exciting to hear from the governor as they celebrate with the first person in their family to go to college.

The governor left by 8 p.m. after giving her speech and then the graduates walked the stage.

Fallin also noted that Murray State now has a woman president, Ross said.
