Congrats August Grads! Department Celebrates Summer 2013 Graduation

COLLEGE STATION, Texas—Seven students from the Department of Entomology were among thousands of others that braved the warm afternoon outside Reed Arena as they walked the stage this past Friday.

Five undergraduates and two Ph.D. students were among hundreds of other graduating students in the Colleges of Agriculture and Agriculture, George Bush School of Government and Public Service, Mays Business School and the Dwight Look College of Engineering during the afternoon ceremony.

Before the Friday ceremony, students and their families had a chance to listen to Head Coach of the Texas A&M Women’s Softball Jo Evans speak at a special convocation at Rudder Auditorium on Thursday. Students and faculty celebrated this momentous occasion over sandwiches, cake and other finger foods during a special reception in the Heep Center fourth floor atrium on Friday.

“We are so very proud of all of her hard work she has done,” said Alyssa Mann’s mom Veronica Mann. “She has sacrificed a lot during her four years.”

Micah Flores’ mentor Dr. Jeffery Tomberlin was very proud of him for graduating with his Ph.D. and said it was very deserving.

“Micah has been a great student,” Tomberlin said. “He has matured into a colleague and friend.” Congratulations to all that are expected to walk this spring and we wish you good luck in your future endeavors:
