The MTSU Office of Intercultural and Diversity Affairs hosted an Intercultural Graduation Reception Tuesday, April 14, in the Tom H. Jackson Building.
Each spring and fall, the office invites all students of color who are graduating to this reception “to recognize them for their accomplishments,” said Jonell Hinsey, interim director of the MTSU Office of Intercultural and Diversity Affairs.
Dr. Deb Sells, vice president of student affairs and vice provost of academic and enrollment services, gave remarks and graduates Jeania Ware and Sydney Eakes gave reflections on their academic careers.
Students accepting invitation to the latest reception will graduate in May or August. They included Margaret Blakemore, Michelle Fields, Mai Abdelmonem, Yerlyn Castro-Vargas, Maryam Afzali, Megan Ballou, Tiara Battle, Kavonda Camady, Jeanette Adereti, Desiree DeStefano, Kenya Gray, Sydney Eakes, Nichole Bell, Atria Davis, Gabriell Gassaway, Kimberly Corado, Amanda Davis, Brittany Harris, Jeania Ware, Julie Carter, and Tiffany Hopkins.
