I am so proud to preside over two ceremonies that have such meaning to our university.
The first one is the White Coat ceremony which welcomes new medical students, physician assistant studies students, and physical therapy students to their chosen profession. Receiving a white coat at the start of their education reinforces the gravitas of the journey students are embarking on their chosen field.
The second ceremony is our Winter Commencement which ushers out new professionals into the medical and education fields. We will be celebrating with our physician assistant studies students, education students, nursing students and camp administration students.
As our new and graduating students know, their journey is difficult but the family and friends watching from the audiences provide the love and support to get them through the hard times and celebrate during the good times. Our students work hard and make a lot of sacrifices to complete their education. They have a passion for what they do and I am inspired daily by that passion.
I invite the entire community to both ceremonies. The White Coat is Sunday, October 11, 3:00 p.m., at the Rio Hotel Las Vegas. Winter Commencement is Sunday, November 1, 3:00 p.m., at Green Valley Ranch Resort.
