Graduates celebrate their achievements

Los Medanos College celebrated its 40th Annual Commencement on May 21. As the ever-familiar piece “Pomp and Circumstance” played, the crowd watched as 349 students walked onto the field, the largest number of graduates to date.

Introduction and greetings speakers included District Board Trustee Greg Enholm, LMC Vice President Kevin Horan and President Bob Kratochvil.

“Each of the students before you has traveled a tremendous journey, one of learning, growth and achievement,” said Kratochvil.

Student speakers for the commencement included Michael “Mickey” Rovere and Sean J.H. Barksdale, who were introduced by Classified Senate President Linda Kohler.

“People that you see here before you tonight all have something in common. They did it,” said Rovere. “They worked hard sleepless nights in order to improve themselves along with the quality of life. Here sit authors, artists, mechanics and tradesmen, doctors, nurses, and scientists. I would like to congratulate the graduating class of 2014. Tonight we are all made of awesome.”

Barksdale went on to add, “As college graduates we now have the power to enter into worlds which our lack of degrees held just out of our grasps. I encourage you all to use this power.”
