congratulations graduates


On Saturday, May 4, about 1,200 Valencia students received their associate degrees as Valencia College celebrated its 44th spring commencement at the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee.

But another 20 Valencia students made history at this commencement ceremony – becoming the first students to earn their bachelor’s degrees at Valencia College.

Eleven of the graduating seniors earned bachelor’s degrees in radiologic and imaging sciences, while nine students earned their bachelor’s degrees in electrical and computer engineering technology.

To recognize this year’s graduates, the college has posted the names of all 7,515 Class of 2013 graduates on a Lynx bus. After commencement ceremonies, the bus will be used on Lynx bus route 15, which travels from downtown Orlando to Valencia’s East Campus, on Econlockhatchee Trail.

The Orlando Sentinel has some great photos from the day here, including a photo of foundation staff member Susan Ambridge and her service dog Binx. Congratulations Susan and to all of our Valencia graduates!
