The class heard from keynote speaker Jeff Minges, president and CEO of the Minges Bottling Group, a franchise Pepsi bottling company. He told the graduates that they had achieved something he never did - get a college diploma. Minges said he working his way up in the family business from the age of 14. Minges told the graduates that he was humbled to be their graduation speaker. "Life is not always about the finish line, but about the journey," he said. He asked families of the graduates to stand and about 90 percent of the audience rose to their feet. He praised families for supporting the students and helping them prepare for college. "Passion fuels ambition within all of us," he said, adding that "we all face adversity, but adversity is a matter of how you handle it." He told of his family losing their bottling plant in Kinston to a fire in 1975, yet never missing a day of production with the aid of other facilities in the east. He said there were words in his story - faith, pride, determination and humility - that he wanted the graduates to take with them. "When given opportunity, you must seize the moment and not ask why you didn't later," he added. "Embrace life as a gift."
Recipients, from left, Bob Mattocks, Jeff Minges and Bruce Waugh stand with the new wall honoring their designation as inaugural winners of Craven Community College Foundation's Community Fabric Awards.
The inaugural designations went to Robert L. "Bob" Mattocks II for Individual Leadership, Jeffrey M. Minges of Minges Bottling Group-Pepsi for Business Leadership, and Bruce D. Waugh of Craven Community College for Education Leadership. Minges said: "I am most humbled and honored about the comments about all the recipients. He said it was touching because Tom Minges, first cousin who died in June, was not there. "I miss him so much in the business. We both had strengths and weaknesses and were able to help each other in a wonderful, wonderful business relationship," he said. Both men were part of a family business that foundation directors see as part of the fabric of Eastern North Carolina and Minges said he tries to keep pulling good threads into the cloth. "I pride myself on being a good father; I've raised two good young men, Miles, 32, and Landon, 28, and I see them as every energetic young men, chips off the old block. That makes me most proud to know that some of the teaching I learned from my father I've been able to pass along to them." Minges grew up in Kinston, and at 14 went to Randolph Macon. But Minges said, "When I think of the fabric, it reminds me of the 250 employees (in Minges Bottling Group). It represents teamwork and dedication." Minges has established a $250,000 community college scholarship endowment and continues to support the college and community that is the birthplace of Pepsi.
