Commencement Message from Board of Trustees President Abel Guillén

16 May 2014

Abel-Guillen-President

To the Peralta Community College District Community:

The Trustees of the Peralta Community College District extend our heartfelt congratulations to the graduates of Laney College, College of Alameda, Merritt College and Berkeley City College and thank you for your work and commitment to our students, faculty and staff who make up our diverse and dynamic educational community.  We also congratulate the families and friends who support our graduates in their studies.  As the time for commencement exercises approaches we reflect on the accomplishments of our graduates and ask you to join us in lifting them up and celebrating their success. The practice of the Peralta Community College District is for each college to plan its commencement ceremony through an internal committee process driven by the input of students, faculty, staff and administration of each individual college.  We support the integrity of this process and ask that all of those attending commencement exercises respect the students and their families and friends, as well as the faculty and staff assembling in celebration of our graduates by honoring the students as the reason and focus of commencement.

Nelson Mandela said education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world.  Please join us in celebrating the educational achievement of our students as we recognize them for their hard work and demonstration of personal excellence.

Sincerely,
Abel Guillén
President, Peralta Community College District Board of Trustees
