Mayor's remarks at Hostos 39th Commencement

The inspiring story of the Sotomayor family is the story of New York City, and also the story of Hostos.

It’s a story told in many different languages:

Not just English, and not just Spanish, but in all the 80 different languages spoken by Hostos students, and all the 200 languages spoken in our city.

It’s a story of immigrants working hard to create a new life in a new home:

Because nearly 60% of Hostos students, and nearly 40% of the people of New York, were born in other lands.

And it’s a story of devotion to education as the path to success.
