LSC-Kingwood to Hold On-campus Spring Commencement

Published on: April 30, 2008

Faculty, staff and administrators will don the traditional regalia, parents will watch from the crowd and graduates will step up to receive well-earned degrees in LSC-Kingwood's spring commencement ceremonies on May 9.

LSC-Kingwood President Dr. Linda Stegall will preside over the ceremony and share her enthusiasm for the graduates and their families.

The evening's event will be held on the LSC-Kingwood Commons now known across campus as the ‘Grad Grass' and will include a performance by the Kingwood Community Symphonic Band, the faculty procession and the mace being carried by Professor Raul Reyes.

This year's commencement speaker will be Ms. Amanda Jean Mitchell, Class of 2004.  Mitchell's educational journey is an amazing story that truly inspires and motivates those who have the opportunity to hear her.  Mitchell's perseverance was rewarded when she was LSC-Kingwood's first graduate to receive her associate's degree before she received her high school diploma.

The ceremony will also feature student speaker, Ms. LaKeisha DeAndrea Calhoun.

Nearly 200 students are expected to participate in the commencement ceremony beginning at 6:30 p.m. with a reception for the graduates and guests held immediately following the ceremony on the plaza of the Health and Science Building.
