Graduation season continues with Visalia’s ceremony
More than 200 students from the Visalia, Hanford, Lemoore and Online campuses were on hand Friday, June 9, to claim their associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from Brandman University.
The commencement, organized for those living in California’s Central Valley, was held at the Visalia Convention Center and featured three student speakers: Terese Cardamon, Frank Ghiglia and Cyndy Swift.
The stands were full of family and friends ready to cheer their favorite graduates when they were congratulated by Vice Chancellor Shelly Neal and Assistant Vice Chancellor Patricia Steinhaus Hammer or received their master’s or doctoral hoods from faculty members Isa Ribadu, Lois Zercher Wynne and Alan Enomoto. Also on hand were campus and site directors Sonia Gutierrez-Mendoza and Bethany Matos.
The ceremony included recognition of the Rev. John Jordan and the Visalia Disciples of Christ Church for providing three $2,000-scholarships. Recipients and new graduates Nalea See and Jennifer Knight showed their gratitude with wide smiles as they handed Jordan a plaque.
