School of Business Commencement Program

On Thursday, May 18, at the School of Business program, the 2017 Neil Gaston Student Achievement Award was presented to Jonathan T. Sheridan, a finance major. Continuing a tradition started by Dean Keep in 2010, faculty and staff invite a student speaker to represent the graduating class at the School of Business Commencement Program — this year our student speaker was Alyssa Freitas (management).
