The latest class of College of Family and Consumer Sciences graduates was recognized at the FACS convocation ceremony on Friday at Hugh Hodgson Concert Hall.
More than 60 students participated in the ceremony out of the more than 100 who were eligible to receive diplomas.
Several students were recognized for exceptional achievement, including Nakia Smith, financial planning, housing and consumer economics department, Outstanding Senior Recipient; and Rachel Bailey, foods and nutrition department, Academic Achievement Recipient.
Textiles, merchandising and interiors graduate Tierra Creekmur delivered the student perspective speech, and Dorothy Dupree from the foods and nutrition department gave the student challenge.
“My time at FACS has been great,” said FHCE graduate Terry Montano. “All the professors know my name and help you achieve your goals. Everything I’ve learned applies to real life and the professors make sure you’re ready to join the work force.”
