The 92nd spring Commencement ceremony at Dickinson State University will take place Saturday, May 12, at 10 a.m. in Scott Gymnasium. A reception will immediately follow in Weinbergen Gymnasium. This spring, the university expects to graduate 281 students from 17 states and 12 foreign countries during this year's ceremony.
This year, graduating seniors were nominated by each academic department to a selection committee which included DSU students, faculty and staff. Students were then required to present their speeches to the committee. DSU graduating senior, Leah Walters, Gladstone, N.D., has been selected as this year's student commencement speaker. Walters will be graduating with Summa Cum Laude honors with a bachelor of arts degree in music. After graduation, Walters will be attending North Dakota State University to pursue a master's degree in vocal performance.
Walters is the daughter of Daniel and Brenda Walters.
