Special to GUIDON

College dignitaries, faculty, Soldiers, family members and other well-wishers will gather to participate in ceremonies to honor the 644 people who earned associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s college degrees this year, from the seven institutions providing degree programs on the installation at 1 p.m., Saturday, at Baker Theater.

Four of the seven on-post colleges; Central Texas College, Columbia College, Park University, and Webster University, will celebrate their accomplishments.  





Some graduates will be unable to participate in the ceremonies, as permanent change of station moves and deployment have dislocated many personnel; however, around 120 students are expected to be present to walk the stage and receive the degrees they have earned. About 50 percent of those earning degrees are military.

Maj. Gen. Gregg Martin, Maneuver Support Center and Fort Leonard Wood commanding general, will officially welcome the attendees.  

The master of ceremonies, Kevin Hillman, J. D., Park University academic director, will introduce Dr. Roxanne Gonzales, associate dean for Park University College of Distance Learning, who will give the commencement address.  

College and university officials, in turn, will confer the degrees earned, as graduates come up on stage to receive their diplomas and be photographed. Graduates and guests are invited to a reception set at the Pershing Community Center immediately after the ceremony.

The following are this year’s graduates:
