Maybe your boss just couldn’t let you have the day off. Or you live hundreds of miles away and had no way to be there. And while your heart was with your loved one or friend walking in Heritage University’s 33rd Commencement, it just wasn’t possible to see the event in person.
Well, not to worry. Our cameras were there that Saturday, May 9 at the Yakima Valley Sundome. We caught the marching, beaming smiles, laughter, tears, all the pomp and circumstance that made up Commencement. Now with this video, you can watch the inspiring keynote speech from Commencement speaker Dr. Thomas ‘Les’ Purce, the President of The Evergreen State College. You can also watch graduates Sergio Avila, Shannah Davidian and Gabriela Whitemarsh share their stories of their path to commencement, and hear them thank those who made their dreams possible. And of course, you’ll get to hear the name of every graduate called, and watch each of them walk the stage and receive a congratulatory handshake from Heritage University President Dr. John Bassett.
With our video, if you couldn't be there, now you can.
