I want to commend everyone for the hard work and extra efforts they put forth in making the 2012 Virginia Western Commencement Ceremony the best ever. I have heard over and over how wonderful the stage area looked, that the screens were most beneficial to the audience, that the ushers did a great job with the large crowd and that the number of faculty and staff present was gratifying. Having the largest graduation class in history didn't hurt, either!
The Commencement Committee and Dr. Mary Loritsch didn’t miss anything. Other departments and individuals such as the Marketing and Institutional Advancement staff, Facilities Management staff, Media Geeks, Campus Police, ushers and Carlton Mabe, Student Services staff, Records staff, college volunteers, marching faculty, Faculty Marshal Steve Huff and platform participants made this an event to remember.
Graduation is the highlight of the college year. The event that took place Friday evening was done with that in mind and it showed to our students, parents and friends what we think of them. Thanks again to everyone involved. You did Virginia Western proud!
