Hello Ms. Chiang,
I just wanted to give the college a huge shout out for last Friday’s graduation. I graduated from a college in northern California about 27 years ago, and have gone back to further my education. I was one of the fortunate graduates of the 99 TH graduating class and I must say it was amazing. I felt so proud of Bakersfield college in how they preform their ceremony. The instructors who were giving high fives and hugs as we walked out was truly the best part. I really felt that they cared for me, even though many did not know me. I felt they all were proud of us and that is awesome.
Thanks again for a great ceremony.
