Saint Augustine’s University awarded bachelor’s degrees to 210 seniors during its 2012 Commencement ceremony Saturday, May 5. The class of 2012 makes history as the last graduating class of Saint Augustine’s University. Effective Aug. 1, the school becomes Saint Augustine’s University.
President Dianne Boardley Suber encouraged students to pay themselves first by investing; to be decision-makers; to have integrity; and to give back.
“(Success is) yours for the asking,” Suber said. “All you have to do is reach out and pull it to you.”
Veteran political strategist Donna Brazile delivered the commencement address. Brazile charged students to continue the hard work begun by those who came before them.
“We worked hard, we struggled, we believed in our cause. We heard the call and we stepped up,” Brazile said. “Now it’s your turn. Why you? Because there’s no one better.”
The University also recognized members of the class of 1962, who commemorated their 50th reunion this weekend.
